Clay Creek is a good snowshoe trip as some patchy snow at the start of trip. Located off of Hwy 410 east of Enumclaw. One can ski if they do not mind carry skies for the first 1/2 mile or so. 3-4 feet of snow at about 2800 feet.

Driving Directions: From Enumclaw drive on State Highway 410 east drive past milepost marker 36 and park on the left and look for sign that says road 6208. The start of this is before you get to the small town of Greenwater.
Trail Directions and Track of the hike (thanks Dennis Long)Just follow the main road 6208 and you can go up to 5.5 miles one way to 2800 which is a 1400 foot gain. However you can hike less and still get great view. Bring Hancock permit for this hike.
