Look for a blue Subaru with the trunk open

This hike will follow the nicely-graded Pacific Crest Trail from Snoqualmie Pass up to a steep ridge walk blasted out of the side of the mountain.  There will likely be sections of snow to cross, and microspikes and poles are highly encouraged.

After the hike, plan to stop for a bite to eat on the way back home.
