What to Bring

Dress for work and weather: long pants, long-sleeved shirts, closed-toed shoes or boots, and a rain jacket. Tools and gloves will be provided, but bring some snacks and a water bottle.

Where to Meet

The forest is located along 39th Ave S, between S Cloverdale and S Trenton Streets in South Beacon Hill/Rainier Beach. Use 8631 39th Ave S as an approximate address for the upper trail entrance. We will meet at the upper entrance by the yellow fire hydrant, but if you arrive late, just follow the trail and look for us in the woods. The forest is a short walk from bus stops or light rail. If arriving by light rail, use address 4005 S Trenton St, which will take you to the lower trail entrance, then take the trail uphill.

Where to Park

Limited parking is available adjacent to the site along 39th Ave S, and more parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood.
