Meet at the TH and be ready to hike at 5:00pm. or carpool from Mercer Island P&R at 4:15pm. Please coordinate with me via e-mail if you want to carpool

Expected pace from car to summit is about two hours +/- 20 minutes. Hike at your own pace on the ascent, and then we'll all hike down together. Generally you will want to be fairly fit and/or have some experience with long, steep hikes.
