We'll hike to Little St. Helens atop West Hansen Creek Ridge. Our route will begin on Trail 1020,a good road-to-trail conversion, before transitioning to follow a good path up a de-commissioned road. There will be several “Sound of Music” alpine views along the way ending with Mt. Rainier in your face, weather permitting. The map for the day is the 2014 revision to the Green Trails Bandera #206 map. The leader's phone number the morning of the hike is (425) 394-8244.
