Meet 9:00 a.m. at the Mt Si Trailhead.  

This hike is intended as a conditioner for summer backpacking, carrying a pack weight heavier than a normal day pack, but all are welcome to join me in a hike up Mt Si.   

If carrying extra weight, you may want to include containers of water, and then you'll have the option of dumping water for the descent or whenever you choose.  Please carry a pack weight appropriate for your level of conditioning, with the goal of reaching the summit in 2-2.5 hours.  I plan to carry  25-30 pounds.
