  • From the west, drive I-90 to Exit 38. Take old US 10, following signs for the State Fire Training Center, to the I-90 underpass. At 0.2 miles past the underpass is a gate marked "Locked at 4pm". Follow the road (on foot if worried about the gate), and at 0.4 mile past a bridge over the Snoqualmie River (at a curve on the right) is the easy-to-miss trail/creekbed.
    It's creepy
