We will meet at 10am.  Please be ready to go at this time. There are no restrooms as this spot. 

If driving East on I-90 through Issaquah, take EXIT 20. At the end of the ramp turn Right and take another immediate Right on SE 79th. We will park here along the road. We will NOT be parking up at the High Point Trailhead. If driving Westbound on I-90, you can also exit here.

Please be prompt, bring a map, snacks and lunch, water, and your Ten Essentials.  Please also carry your Microspikes or other similar traction devices for your footwear in case of any snow. Footwear should have good tread and water repellency qualities. Trekking poles are highly encouraged for steep and/or uneven terrain.

The trails could be a little brushy and wet so dress accordingly in layers.  If the weather is pleasant, we will take more time at the summit and any viewpoints. If not, we will keep a steady and comfortable moderate-pace, but try to limit our stopping time.

We will plan on taking the High Point Trail to Lingering Trail to TMT to WTT, and then back down catching K3, TMT, and the lower part of Cable Line.
