Meet at the Issaquah Transit Center parking garage NE corner at 6:30 AM

We will leave my minivan that can squeeze 8 people at the Little Si trail head and then drive the other cars to the Teneriffe trailhead.  We will hike up Teneriffe via the falls / ridge trail. From the Teneriffe summit we will traverse over to Mt Si.  If the conditions are fairly dry this will be via the high ridge.  If time permits we will scramble north from that ridge out to Dixey Peak which has a nice view of the North Snoqualmie Valley.

If it is rainy, we will skip the ridge and hike the road from Teneriffe to Si. 
If it is dry and the group is amazingly fast, we will climb the Mt Si haystack.

Finally, we will hike down the "old trail" to the Little Si trailhead.

Note that if we do Dixey and the Heystack, this trip is nearly the same effort as doing Mt Si by via the "new trail" twice.  Be prepared for a long day and coming down the trail with headlamps.
