Meet at 7:30 at Tibbetts Valley Park in Issaquah (behind the skateboard park) to carpool to the trailhead). Or, meet at the trailhead at 8:15. I’d like to begin hiking by 8:30.

This is a moderately strenuous hike — please be aware of the miles and elevation gain before signing up. I will stop occasionally for short breaks and to check in with everyone. Also, if you are in the lead, please wait at all water crossings and trail junctions for everyone to catch up — and please wait at the trailhead at the end of the hike until everyone has returned.
