KUOW Hike - Clay Creek

Updated 2-7-2012
Just east of Enumclaw this road walk just has patchy snow and you get views of Mt. Rainier.
Tuesday will be a great day to view Mt. Rainier from this road under mostly sunny and breezy conditions. Chance of light showers for Wednesday and early Thursday. Perhaps Thursday afternoon will be dry with some good views.

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.s

Always bring map and compass and or GPS as these directions are the best estimates.
Also you need a permit from Hancock to access this.
