Conditioner Hikes - Putrid Pete's Peak

A great Mt Si alternative

  • Thu, May 2, 2019
  • Seattle Climbing
  • Day Hiking
  • Adults
  • Strenuous 3, Technical 2
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 5.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,000 ft

Meet at Mercer Island Park and Ride at 5:00PM or the Ira Spring Trailhead at 6:00PM. If driving, note that a Northwest Forest Pass is required (can sub America the Beautiful/National Parks Pass).

Bring weight to carry. Pace will accommodate the group, but I'm anticipating roughly 3.5 hours on trail (2 up and 1.5 down). Be aware that the trail is unmaintained, and since sunset is 8:22 remember to bring headlamps. I'll have summit treats to share at the top. 

Dinner in town afterwards for anyone who would like to join.
