Driving directions: Take Highway 410 and from Enumclaw and go east about 18 miles and once at  the Federated Forest (which is on the right)  turn left on FS 7120.

Trail stats: This is one of the trips you can go as far or short of a distance that you like to. Note there are several big down trees to climb over at the start of the hike but after that no issues.

Here are several trips you can do:
This is 5.3 miles roundtrip and 1200 foot gain
This is to the "cross" and is only 2.5 miles roundtrip and 700 foot gain
