Walk on gated logging road just east of town of Greenwater off of Highway 410. We hiked up to 3500 feet and there was only 2 inches of snow. Thanks to Dennis Long for photos.

Directions: From the town of Greenwater on Highway 410 drive east slightly more then 2 miles to FS 70 and turn left. Then drive about 1 mile and turn left on FS 7010 and park near gate but do not block gate. There is Hancock land on either side of the road for first mile but the actual road does not appear to be Hancock land so it is assumed a permit is not needed.
Stats: Views of Mt. Rainer starts to appear at about 3 miles into the hike with best views 5 miles one way and gain of about 1000 feet.
