11:00 at Mercer Island Park & Ride, N Mercer Way
This is a perfect hike for lazy hikers who sleep a lot in the morning. Please let me know if you are planning to come directly to the trailhead so that we don't wait for you. This is a moderate hike with about 1,800 ft. elevation gain over 7 miles round trip. We will go a little bit further from Rattlesnake Ledge up to the third view point and then we will turn back. Views are beautiful. Please read more about Hiking 10 Essentials and feel free to ask me if you have some questions: Meeting Place: Mercer Island Park & Ride, N Mercer Way This Park & Ride is very convenient place to meet because it is next to I-90 and it is easily accessible from both directions East & West.
