We will meet at the Margaret's Way trailhead at 9:00am.  We will want to be geared up and ready to go shortly after 9:00.   Since it is a Saturday the traffic should be much lighter.  Directions to follow.

Margaret's Way is a great hike and the weather is forecast to have  clouds.  It is going to be warmer than earlier than in the weak.  You will  want to have at least 3 sets of gloves for the day.  I will bring hand warmers for those that need them.  Please wear hiking boots for the day and have Micro Spikes or Yak Tracks.  Please bring your Ten Essentials.  I will send out a Welcome to the Hike a  couple of days before our hike and it will include directions to the trailhead.  Margaret's way just outside of Issaquah.
