This is one of a few hikes along I-90 line that I haven't done so I would like to do it this fall. I am taking with me my 10 years old son who is a pretty strong hiker but he is not very fast on the way up so don't expect very fast pace. There will be no long breaks until we reach a destination but we will take as many short brakes as we need them. This is not a conditioning hike so you have to be patient and stay with a group all the time. We will regroup in a few cars in Issaquah an try to start a hike around 9 am. It will probably take us about 6-8 hours depending on how we do as a group. ATTENTION: In the case of bad weather conditions I will postpone this hike for a week or so.
