  • Easy
  • Meet at the trailhead's parking lot (the old Issaquah Highlands Recreational Club) at 9:00am


From I-90, take exit 15 signed Lake Sammamish/Renton Highway 900. At the stoplight at the end of the exit turn right onto Highway 900/Renton-Issaquah Road and go south toward Renton. From the stoplight drive 3.3 miles and there will be an easy-to-miss driveway on the left side of the road. Turn into this, which leads into the old Issaquah Highlands Recreational Club, where you will park to begin your hike.

Do a day of stewardship with King County's Weed Watcher's Program! On this hike you will learn how to identify invasive weeds, use surveying equipment, remove weeds, and hike with friendly, like-minded people.

This activity is through the King County Weed Watchers program. RSVP: joseph.neumann@kingcounty.gov

When we ran the Alpine Lakes Weed Watchers program, we do so in partnership with this King County program, so we are thrilled to partner with King County Weed Watchers for these trips.

Their staff run this activity and you will be in good hands – they have been running their Weed Watchers program for years and are very knowledgeable.

Check out the King County website for more info on their Weed Watchers program in general.
