Day Hike - Mount Si Old Trail

Very nice sunny day on Mt. Si!

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • The Old Trail is in good shape, some brushing of small broken branches would be nice.  Patches of hard icy snow were encountered after the junction with the main trail, but easily negotiated without using spikes.  Not many other hikers until the junction.

Met at the Little Si trailhead a few minutes before 7 a.m.  Started hiking about 7:20, no headlamps needed.  Tolerably chilly, but not freezing.  We took the Boulder Garden loop counter-clockwise up to connect with the old trail, and the other half clockwise down.  The top was cold, but with a clear sunny sky we had a wonderful leisurely break with nice views, it felt almost like spring!

Slightly over six hours round trip including breaks, 3,360 gain.  A fun day with great companions!
