Recommended type of dive: Shore

How to dive this site: This is a great deep dive for those that want a simple dive from shore. At around 80 - 90' is a big rock, 20' tall and 20' wide, a ledge of sand is next to it and is also interesting to explore. To dive this site, gear up where you parked and hike down the train tracks to the left. (It is questionable whether you are trespassing or not, but it has been done many, many times.) Stop when you see an old set of stairs on the right (they are barely recognizable, but if you go past the log retaining wall on the left you have gone to far). Enter the water and head directly out from shore, be on the lookout for trains.

GPS Coordinates: N47 51, 042 W. 122 20, 315.

Directions to the site: From the south - Take exit 179 from I-5 (220th street SW) and go west until crossing Highway 99 (Aurora Avenue North). Turn right at next light onto 76th street SW. Follow 76th through residential area until turning left onto 162nd street SW. Park on the hill next to railroad track. Walk next to tracks south until reaching stairs down to the water.

From the north - Take 524 to 196th street SW from I-5, cross Aurora Avenue north, turn right onto 76th and follow 76th until turning left on 162nd street SW. Park on the side of the road and walk downhill to the train tracks. Follow the train tracks south. A set of stairs will be on the right and will lead you to the water. If you pass the wooden wall on the left, you have gone too far.
