Meet at the High School Trailhead off 2nd Ave SE, south of the Issaquah High School baseball field.  It's a small lot and does not require a pass to park.  Meeting time is 7 AM.

Hiking boots or trail running shoes will be fine.  I hiked this trail on March 10th and only 100 yards of snow/ice on trail.  During this time, micro spikes are not required but bring them if you want.
