10am, North Viking Transit Center and Park & Ride, 21992 Viking Ave, Poulsbo WA.  If anybody is coming from Seattle, I can pick up a few people at the Bainbridge ferry at 9:30am (you would take the 8:55 from Seattle).

This is a nice conditioning hike, 2000 ft gain in a couple miles, so it doesn't take that long.  I expect about an hour up, lunch for 1/2 hour, then an hour down.  Should be back to Poulsbo by  3.  We will take the extra 10 minutes to hike to the south summit.  If the weather is nice, there should be a good view of Seattle.
