Field trip: Alpine Scrambling Course

Conditioning Hikes (one required, multiple are optional) - Mount Si Main Trail

Seattle Alpine Scramble Course Conditioning Hike

  • Moderate/Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,150 ft

Tibbetts Park & Ride, in Issaquah at 7am.

There we will form optional carpools and will drive to the trailhead.  A Discover Pass will be required for vehicles taken to the trailhead.  Call the leader at (206) 351-7971 if you are running late.  We will leave the P&R when all participants are there or by 7:10.

This trip is one of a series of hikes for scramble course students to work on their conditioning, explore the foothills peaks and become better acquainted with the other students and scramble community members. These conditioners are also a great way to test out your gear in the field.

This trip is not a scramble and does not count toward graduation. Each student must do one conditioning trip that is listed with the course, and we strongly encourage you to sign up for hikes and other conditioning activities with the Mountaineers.

Please bring microspikes

This is not a scramble, so helmets, ice axes and harnesses are not required.  However, for conditioning purposes it is recommended that you carry all the gear you will be taking on a scramble trip. 

Everything else you would bring on a regular scramble course is required including the 10 essentials, rain gear and extra clothes.

This is a great time to test our the boots you are planning to use during the scramble course for fit and comfort. If you do not have those boots yet sturdy hiking boots will suffice for now.
