Meet by  9:15 a.m. in front of Issaquah City Hall (130 E Sunset Way, Issaquah, WA 98027). This site is accessible by Sound Transit route 554. For those coming by car, carpools are encouraged (you can find people's contact information and carpool preferences by clicking on the roster on this page). There is free parking across the street. We will walk to the trailhead from here. 

We will park in historic Issaquah near the police station/city hall (where there is ample free parking across the street) and walk a short urban trail to the main trailhead (which has very little parking). Rather than taking the crowded Chirico Trail, we will take the longer and more scenic route up to Poo Poo Point.
