We will meet 9:00AM at the Tibbetts Park and Ride Lot (1675 Newport Way NW, Issaquah) across the street from the parking garage in Issaquah and assemble in carpools to drive to the trailhead.  We should be on the trail before 9:30AM. 

We will hike up to Debbie's View and take a 15 to 20 minute break, weather permitting.  I recommend wearing gaiters since the trail is muddy in a couple of spots.  Do not worry about bringing a map.  The trail is just a couple of years old.
