Meet at 9:30 AM at the Snoqualmie Point trailhead, reached by taking Exit 27 from I-90, turning right at the end of the exit and right again shortly before reaching  the end of the road into the West Rattlesnake Mountain parking lot.  Each car parked there must display the Discover Pass.

Carpooling is not recommended due to COVID restrictions at this time.

This location intersects with a Mountain Bike trail along several points.

Due to Social Distancing still in effect, this trip is limited to 6 participants.  Everyone must be willing to maintain the 6 ft distancing, wear a cloth face covering when passing others, and carry hand sanitizer. We are also required to cancel if unfavorable conditions (such as heavy rain).

This is a pleasant hike through deciduous and evergreen trees, to a viewpoint with a picnic table where  you can see Mount Si and the Snoqualmie Valley.  We return by the same route.  The only restroom facility on the hike is at the trailhead but may still be closed.
