7:30 AM

Issaquah Transit Center


Travel along Commonwealth Creek beyond Commonwealth Falls, heading up into where Commonwealth Basin opens up to views of Red Mountain and Lundin Peak.
This trail starts out from the PCT trailhead on the north side of I-90 at the Alpental exit. We'll meet up at the Issaquah Transit Center to consolidate carpools, and then drive up to the first Summit West parking lot to begin our trip.

I'm planning to take it fairly slowly on this trip. We're close to town so let's take the time to enjoy the scenery.

Snowshoe Equipment List Please be fully-prepared for snow travel with all the usual gear including your Ten Essentials. And lunch!
