  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 15.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,000 ft

We'll leave from Issaquah (leader will email participants specifics) @ 7AM - so plan on meeting a little earlier.

I hiked this route ~10 days ago and there was some snow but not much. There was one steep snow section but I was able to go a little off trail to avoid. Please bring traction if you're concerned (I didn't need any but had good boots). Whether we do a loop or in/out will depend on participant preference. (The loop is slightly less strenuous but has several water crossings). The plan currently is go in and return the same way. Please provide data on a recent trip you completed when requesting permission to come with.
