  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 7.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,300 ft
  • Pace: 1,000 ft/hr

This is a morning conditioner. We will meet at the trailhead no later than 8:00 a.m. Please plan for traffic accordingly. 

We will start at the Mt. Si Old Trail parking area. Ride/vehicle arrangements can be made by participants as we get closer.

Some steep portions of the trail exist. Check conditions ahead of time to see if microspikes/traction will be necessary. My intent is a steady pace with minimal breaks until we reach the top, then take our time exploring before heading down.
