Meet at 8AM Sharp, at the Little Si trailhead, SE Mt Si Rd, North Bend, WA 98045.  Google map location https://goo.gl/maps/gnzqmEvy6sYNmEmy9.  We are meeting by the restroom building in the main parking lot.  The first turnoff from Mt. Si Road is to the overflow parking lot.  Continue to the main parking lot.  If the main parking lot is full, you can park in the overflow lot and walk a trail from there to the main parking lot. 

The first quarter mile of the hike is relatively steep.  The next mile is mostly level and the last part is steeper.  The trail is switch-backed and in good condition. At the end is a large rock formation that is steeper that will require climbing up the rock formation, but with the ability to step on rock grooves for stability, and holding on to trees to hoist yourself up. There is a bench at about the halfway point that makes a good rest stop.  The hike is entirely under a forest canopy until we reach the top, where we are in the open, sitting on large rocks to eat lunch and take in the panoramic view.  

We will follow The Mountaineers phase 2 Covid-19 protocols and every participant will be asked to agree to the Covid-19 Code of Conduct in order to register.
