  • Mileage: 4.0 mi

We'll be meeting at the trailhead at 06:30PM. Take Exit 17 off of I-90 and turn right onto Front Street. Reach a gravel parking lot on the left in about 3 mils from I-90.

I drive a tan Ford Explorer with firefighter license plates. I'll be near the main entrance on the north side of the parking lot. 

This is a beautiful steep trail with views of Mt Rainier, Issaquah, Bellevue, Seattle, Mt Baker, the Olympics, and Lake Sammamish.

We'll be moving at a moderate pace to reach the summit around an hour with a 15 minute break before returning back down.
