Tradition Lake Interpretive Shelter

This open-sided, first come, first served shelter near the High Point Way/Tradition Lake trailhead can seat a group of approximately 25 people.

driving directions

From I-90, a few miles east of Issaquah, take Exit 20 for High Point and turn south on 270th Ave SE. Just a few yards south of I-90, turn right onto SE 79th St and continue on west. The pavement ends in 0.4 miles, and a gate there is open each day from dawn until dusk. Drive through on the gravel road and park in the lot, or if you arrive before dawn or plan to come out after dusk, park on the road below the gate.
