Conditioning Hikes - Mount Si Main Trail

Successful conditioning hike to the bench below the Haystack gully.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Compact snow on trail starting at around 2800'.  Micro spikes were used by most but not all of the group.

Positive surprise of no precipitation despite forecast of 80+ percent for rain or snow.  Started around 8:00am and reached the bench at 10:30 with a moderate pace.  Encountered light snow on the trail at around 2800' where some participants started to use micro spikes. Spent about 30 minutes at the bench including a short walk to the base of the gully.  Arrived back at the cars shortly after 1:00.  Good outing with a good group.
