Meet 9:00 a.m. at the Chirico TH parking lot.  

Drive Directions:  From I-90 in Issaquah take Exit 17 (Front Street) and head south on Front Street through the old part of town. At the south end of town, Front Street changes names to Issaquah Hobart Road.  At 3 miles from I-90, turn into the large graveled parking area on the left adjacent to the paraglider landing field.

This hike is part of the Winter Conditioning Hike Series hosted by the Foothills Branch.  It is not part of a course or program.  Like any other open hike, it is open to all Mountaineers members!

We'll hike rain or shine, so good rain gear, non-cotton layers, warm hat/gloves, and waterproof boots are required.   Microspikes and poles are also required as part of winter gear.

This is a good conditioning hike, with some strenuous steep sections.   The pace will be moderate!  Please be able to hike on a fairly steep grade at a steady moderate pace.  Participants are welcome to hike at  a faster pace to Poo Poo Point, but thereafter, because of the many junctions, I'll be keeping the group together.

No Pass is required for this TH parking lot.
