  • Moderate
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 650 ft

7:00 AM at Issaquah Transit Center

Come along on a moderately long (10 miles round trip) hike with low elevation gain, one that nets two nice waterfalls in the process: Big Creek Falls and Otter Falls.

We will consolidate vehicles at the Issaquah Transit Center. (The Middle Fork Road is fortunately much better than it used to be!) Northwest Forest Pass required for parking at the trailhead.

As with all Mountaineers hikes, be prepared with the 10 Essentials, decent boots, lunch, raingear (just in case), and no cotton clothing. Contact the leader if you have any questions about appropriate equipment.
