  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,800 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

Meet at the Highpoint Trail head by the parking lot at 7:45 am. Boots on the trail at 8:00 am.

Getting There

From Seattle, take I-90 east to exit 20 for High Point Way. At the bottom of the exit ramp, turn right at the stop sign and then immediately turn right again. You will now be traveling west, paralleling I-90 on your right. Park along this road if you can find a spot--it's popular here because no permit is required.

If you can't find a spot on the road, or you've found a spot and you're read to start hiking, travel another half mile or so through a gate and along a paved road, before coming to the official DNR parking lot where a Discover Pass is required. Water, maps, and toilets are also available here. Be aware that the gate closes to this lot at night.

We will go at a moderate pace with breaks approximately once every hour. We will stay together as a group. It is a moderate to strenuous hike so please do not sign up if you haven't been hiking for a while or are recovering from illness/ surgery etc. Hike is weather dependent. Will cancel if it's raining!

Good water proof boots and poles are recommended. Don't expect to need microspikes unless the weather changes.
