We will meet at Margaret's Way Trailhead which has a large blue Cougar Mountain Recreation sign on the left as you are going south on the Issaquah/Renton Rd. #900.  This sign is sometimes hard to see and if you pass it you can do a turn around just down the road.  Meeting time will be at 9:00.  If any one would prefer they can meet me at the Tibbett's Park & Ride across from the Issaquah Transit Station at 8:45 and carpool with me or follow to the trailhead.  This trailhead has a very large parking area.

This will be a easy to moderate hike to Debbie's View.  We will take stops as needed.  The weather is scheduled to be nice with a high of about 72 degrees.  We will have time for a snack or lunch at Debbie's View.  There are views of Mt. Rainier and surrounding foothills.  Everyone should bring their 10 Essentials and at least a liter and half of water for the day.  Bring snacks and lunch.  We should be down from this hike around 12:30 to 1:00 time frame.
