  • Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,800 ft

Meet Issaquah Transit Center P&R 8:05 am to consolidate for carpooling to trailhead departing 8:15am. First level, on the East side  (closest to 9th Ave), leader will be driving green Honda CRV. Issaquah Transit Center is at 1050 17th Ave NW (at SR 900) - *NOT* Issaquah Highlands P&R.



The elevation gain is 3,800 feet but great views all the way up help, and we will take it at a moderate (but hopefully reasonably steady) pace.
