We will meet at the trailhead at 8:30 am or if any one needs a carpool we can meet at Tibbetts Park & Ride in Issaquah at 8:00am.  Driving directions to the Little Si trailhead parking are as follows  I-90 East to exit 32 and turn left on 436th Ave. S.E. and turn left at SE North Bend Way travel 0.3 miles and turn right on SE Mount Si Road, the Little Si trailhead parking lot will be on your left about 0.4 miles.  There is a overflow parking area just a little before the main parking lot.  A Discover Pass is needed for this trailhead.

This hike up Little Si will be a fun hike at an easy moderate pace.  The elevation gain is 1300 ft. and 4.7 miles round trip.  This hike usually takes about 3 hours and we should be down somewhere around 12:00 give or take a few minutes.  We will have minor breaks as need and lunch at the summit.  As always bring ten essestials and bring a couple of litters of water.   Right now the weather is scheduled to be very warm at 80 degrees.  This is the reason for the 8:30 am trailhead start time.  With the warm forecast light clothing and pack will be best for the hike.  I will be sending out an e-mail just prior to the hike with any additional info for the day.
