We'll start at the trailhead off May Valley Rd (I'll provide directions soon), hike up the Bullitt trail to the Bullitt fireplace, then stop by Central Peak and return either the way we came or by the equestrian trail. Some steep parts, but nothing too difficult, all at a social pace (that means a a little under moderate pace to allow for captivating conversation). Directions to trailhead: From eastbound I-90 take exit 15. Turn right to go south on Renton-Issaquah Rd (900). Continue about 4 miles along Renton-Issaquah Rd. Turn left on SE May Valley Rd. Continue about 3 miles, parking area will be on the left hand side. If you make it to Issaquah-Hobart Rd, you've gone too far.
