Details

After meeting at QFC and setting up carpools to the trailhead for those who would like (I will be looking for a ride), we will start at the Newton Road TH, take Newton Road down to BPA Road, turn UPHILL on BPA Road (climbs about 800 feet in less than a mile), then turn onto Wildwood trail to Newton Road, then back up Newton Road back to the TH. Total mileage is around five miles. About half of this hike is exposed without the usual canopy of trees. We will hike rain or shine. Please, no pets on this one. This hike will have a pace of 2-2.5 miles/hour (brisk, but not hurried). Bring water, food and proper gear (the ten essentials are recommended on every hike) to keep you happy on the trail. Anyone who would like to meet at the TH let me know and I can give you directions, if needed. You can find a map of the hike here: http://www.mapmyhike.com/routes/view/148723913
