I will be meeting people at the Tibbets Park and Ride in Issaquah - the one just south of the parking structure, next to the park.  I realize this is quite far east for Seattle people when we will be travelling to the Bainbridge Island Ferry in Seattle, so I would recommend that Seattle hikers meet closer to downtown.  I am open to suggestions if anyone can think of one closer.  We will be meeting at Tibbets at 7:30am in order to catch the 8:45am ferry.  


I have yet to check out this trail, but it looks really cool, and there should hopefully not be a lot of people since it is not a very well known hike.  See the WTA description at:

Although this is over on the Olympics, it is on the west  side and easily accessible in a day so that is what we will be doing.
