As an alternate route from North and East of Tacoma/Puyallup you can find your way to I405 and take it South to SR167 South. Follow 167 to SR512 where you exit and go past Puyallup and the Western Washington Fairgrounds to the exit onto Pacific Ave/SR7 also known as The Mountain Highway (it goes to Mt. Rainier) Go left traveling South towards Roy and the mountain. You'll eventually find SR507 splits off towards the right at the "Roy Y". Take SR507 through Roy, McKenna, Yelm and on to Rainier. Watch for left turns in Roy and Rainier and watch those speed limits. Keep following the signs for SR507. In the town of Rainier, SR507 becomes Binghampton Road, go on through town and about 1.5 miles further you'll find the site on the right. This is actually not as bad as it may sounds and is actually a very pleasant drive.
