Hike in the Woods May 14 

May 2, 2016

Meet at 8:30 am, Saturday, May 14, at Northgate Transit Center and go for a gentle hike in the woods along a logging road and old railroad grade line from the historic mining community Monte Cristo. The Lime Kiln trail passes an old lime kiln and other artifacts used to make mortar and plaster for construction in the 1800s. The railroad followed the South Fork of the Stillaguamish River as it flowed through a wide canyon to Everett. The hike ends where the line was washed out by the surging river. 

This is a flat, unpaved 3.5 mile trail, one-way, suitable for everyone. Hike as far as the group wants to go and back; split into long-haul and short-haul hikers if desired. Carpool from Northgate transit center. The hike is just east of Granite Falls. We should be back by early to mid-afternoon. Bring a lunch.  

Please RSVP to Judy or Al Bentley, Bentley.Judy@gmail.com or ABentley@concentric.net, and let us know if you need a ride from the transit center.
