Getting there

From I-90, take exit 32 (436th Avenue SE). Turn left (north) over the freeway and drive 0.5 miles to SE North Bend Way. Turn left (west), and in 0.25 mile turn right (north) on SE Mt Si Road. In 2.9 miles (past the Little Si and Mt Si trailheads), you will reach a 70-car paved parking area on the left. A Discover Pass is required to park here. Restrooms are available at the trailhead.

Important: The parking lot is open only from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and is gated and locked after hours.

The older parking area (a school bus turnaround near 480th Ave SE) is now off-limits, according to signage on Mt. Si Road.

We will be hiking at a 2.0 mile pace and take a break to view the scenery around South side of North Bend area. Most of the trail faces South so there will be plenty of daylight if it is sunny day. We have a lunch at the fall.

Please bring a plenty of water for protecting from dehydration.

Recommended: trekking poles, rain gear, water proof and sturdy hiking boots to protect your angles and foots. Synthetic fabric clothes (Cotton fabric is not recommended.)
