We will meet at the Mt. Si Trailhead the morning of the 24th (Tuesday) at 9:30.  If any one needs to carpool, I can meet them at the Tibbetts Park & Ride in Issaquah at 9:00 am. or provide carpool information to anyone who needs it a few days prior to the hike.

This hike will be done at a mild moderate pace.  We will be going to where we break out of the trees to the view point that looks across at Mailbox rather than going over to where the bench is that looks down on North Bend.  This is to make sure that we can make it down in time to avoid some of the afternoon rush hour traffic.  We will have time for lunch at the top and snacks and some hydration stops on the way up.  I expect the trip to take around 5 hours.

Micro Spikes and Poles are recommended as we've had a fair amount of snow and ice recently.  Yak Tracks in good condition are okay.  Over the ankle hiking boots are advised.  As always ten essentials and rain gear advised.
