Celebrate Sierra Club founder John Muir's birthday and Earth Day with this special hike through old growth forest. Our hike will be relatively flat, as we are visiting one of the few remaining lowland old growth forest areas in the state. It's a truly special mix of trees and plants, and our route will take us by the unique Hobbit Village - a place known by hikers where we will see some of the “treasures” of the hobbit. Federation Forest was acquired, built and organized just over 60 years ago through the work the Washington State Federation of Women's Clubs. It is a cherished part of our State Park system.

When finished, we’ll have the opportunity for a hot beverage provided by Sierra Club volunteers. Those who want to can enjoy their afternoon snack at the picnic area together.

Date: Sunday April 21. (Same hike as saturday - available both days, come to one day that works best for you.)
Time: Hike starts at 1 PM. carpooling from Enumclaw at about 12:30.

Location: RSVP for location details. Carpooling coordinated as needed.
