Where to Meet
The entrance to the site is from the Hanford Stairs which are east of the intersection of 25th Avenue S and S Hanford ((98144 -Beacon Hill) If you park on 25th S or S Hanford, walk halfway down the stairs; there will be signs that will direct you to the work area. (You can use 3212 25th Ave S on your GPS. The stairs are at the north end of that block)
You can also reach this site by light rail. (Get off of the Mt. Baker station. The road to the south of the station is Winthrop although there isn't a sign that says that. Turn right when you get to the road. The road will curve and become Cheasty Blvd. Keep walking as the road will go past the Hanford Stairs. There will be an event sign showing you where to turn to go up the stairs.) The site is about an 8 minute walk from the light rail.
Parking and traffic can be a problem so light rail is usually the best option.
Where to Park
Park along 25th Avenue S south of Hanford or on side streets.
