Reserve a spot on the March 24 walks

The two walks on March 24 leave at 10:30 a.m and 12:30 p.m. Space is limited on the walks, so if you want in, you'll need to make a reservation.

To reserve a spot, call the Forest Service Visitor Information Center at 425-434-6111. A $15 per person donation is suggested to offset the cost of the program.

Dress to stay warm and dry

Wildflowers may be starting to bloom in the lowlands, but it is still winter in the mountains. Whether you you make one of the snowshoe walks or are planning a snowshoe adventure of your own, make sure to dress for cold winter weather.

Wear a waterproof outer layer, including a hat, and gloves. Dress in warm layers under your waterproof outer layer, and wear sturdy, waterproof boots.
