8:00am at the Preston Park and Ride (I-90 exit 22).  

Parking at the trailhead is tight, so we will consolidate cars at the P&R.

The forecast for Sunday is sunny with a high in the 60s.  That may change by the weekend, but let's give it a go.

The Little Si trail goes through a short but beautiful section of forest before ascending to the rocky summit.   The lower part of the trail is smooth and easy, but the upper part includes a few short steep sections and brief sections over rough rock, so be sure to wear sturdy shoes or boots, something with good traction and support.  Even with a sunny forecast the weather in March can be unpredictable so be sure to pack rain gear just in case.

This is intended to be an enjoyable trip for fun, so if the weather is bad we will cancel.
