From WTA website: From I-90 in Issaquah, take Exit 17 (Front Street) and head south on Front Street through the town. At the south end of town, Front Street changes names to Issaquah-Hobart Road. At 8.5 miles from I-90, just before the Highway 18 overpass, turn left onto Tiger Mountain Road SE. Proceed 0.2 miles and look for places to park along the left shoulder of the road. There is no official trailhead parking so that's your only option. You may find it easier to continue on 0.15 miles to SE 175th Place, make a U-turn, and come back to park on the shoulder. The shoulder is highway right-of-way, and you do not have to display a Discover Pass to park there. There are no facilities. Your hike begins on the TMT, a few feet south of the sign that reads "School Bus Stop Ahead."

Meet time is 7:15, and we'll depart at 7:30 sharp.  This is a key-exchange hike -- make sure you're comfortable with someone else driving your car. 

COVID stopped CHS from happening this year, but it cannot stop the Turkey Burner! This will be the CHS 2 NOBO group, hiking from the TMT south trailhead off Issaquah-Hobart Road to the TMT north trailhead at Tradition Plateau. We'll meet up with the CHS 1 SOBO group somewhere in the middle, swap keys and have lunch, and meet up again at Snoqualmie Point Park to reunite drivers with their cars and share a warm beverage. 

Group size limit is 8, mask/buff/bandana and social distancing required. Gobble Gobble!
