Meet at the picnic table just off the parking lot at 9 am.  Carpooling is encouraged since the lot fills quickly.

Steep but beautifully maintained trail with rock steps.

Mountaineers site says Discover Pass needed, but WTA says not and I've never seen a sign requiring one.

Bring water.  None at parking lot to observation point.

Porta-potties at both.
