We'll meet around 7:15am at the main parking lot to the trail head.  Driver's can take exit 27 off of I-90, take a right and wind around to the left until you can turn right into the main parking lot (there will be an open gate). A discover pass is required and restrooms are available.

This trail offers a gentle climb up to an overlook with views of Snoqualmie and Mt. Si.  Picnic tables and benches will make for a great brunch/lunch spot to rest before we make our way back down to our cars.  I scouted the trail on Saturday, April 10th and it was a bit muddy, but think it will dry up through the week.
