Day Hike - Tradition Plateau

Delightful evening hiking with a good group. We had dinner at the Talus Caves.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • The trail is in great shape.

We met at Issaquah HS. This was the most crowded I have seen the parking lot, must have been a lot of school events last night. We all did manage to find a parking space.  We started on the High School, Section Line and Talus Rock trails. The Talus Caves were our dinner spot - very pleasant. We then headed down the Nook trail and completed our hike along the Bus and and Wetlands trails with a brief stop at Round Lake. Red flowering currant, Oregon grape and a profusion of Osoberry are now blooming. Ravens, Buffleheads and Commorants were seen. 

The weather forecast had been frightful, but the evening turned out fine.
