We will be meeting at 9am at the Tibbetts Valley Park and ride, an outdoor park and ride on the south side of Newport way at Hwy 900 in Issaquah.  From here we will carpool to the trailhead.  No passes are required.

This hike is actually the South Tiger Mountain Loop.  We will be starting from the southern most end of the Tiger Mountain Trail, just off of Tiger Mountain Road SE.  We will make a counterclockwise lollypop loop, getting a wonderful view of Mirrormont on our way out.

 After our hike we will be stopping at the Issaquah Rogue Brewery for lunch.
