Registration Location: Belfair Safeway, 23961 NE State Route 3, Ste B, Belfair, WA
Walk Start/End Location: Theler Community Center, 22871 E State Route 3, Belfair, WA
Driving Directions: From I-5 in Tacoma, take Hwy 16 West (Bremerton/Gig Harbor) crossing the Tacoma Narrows toll bridge and stay on Hwy 16 for 26 miles. Take the exit on the LEFT toward WA-3 (S/Belfair/Shelton) and follow WA-3 into Belfair. The Belfair Safeway is on the right in Belfair about 0.1 miles past NE Creelma Rd. Ask for the walk box at the customer service desk.
After registering, turn right out of the Belfair Safeway lot onto State Highway 3 and drive about 1.2 miles SE to the Theler Community Center. Turn right into the Community Center just BEFORE the sign and park; this is where the walk begins. If you pass the sign (this is easy to do), you have also passed the only entrance to the Community Center, so make a U turn in some safe place and try again.
Start/Finish Times: Daily - 8 AM to Dusk.
Accessability/Amenities: Not possible for wheelchairs or strollers. Pets are not allowed. Restrooms are at the start point.
