Mount Si Old Trail


Day Hike - Mount Si Old Trail

Let the conditioning hikes begin!

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,300 ft

8:30am, Issaquah Transit Center (exit 15 off I-90) for carpooling. Drivers to the trailhead will need a Discovery Pass. 

Sleep in (relatively speaking) on a Sunday, then join me on a classic conditioning hike . Feel free to bring a weighted pack! Please make sure you are in appropriate conditioning for this hike - nobody will be left behind, but we will aim to reach the clearing / viewpoint in 2-2.5 hours. 

We'll take the Old Trail up, then new / Douglas Fir / Boulder Garden trails on the way down. Bring microspikes  and poles - there is a good chance for snow on the trail at this time of the year.
