We'll meet at 7:00 at the Tibbett's Valley Park and Ride in Issaquah then head over the pass to the Teanaway.  Drivers will need a Discover Pass. The last mile of the road is unpaved but is usually in good condition. Detailed directions to follow in the hello hiker email.

The  mountaineers route describes a different trail than we'll be taking. The WTA site is better but a little short on the mileage based on recent trip reports:

Bring your ten essentials. Plan for sun (sunglasses, hat, sunscreen) or rain and bring plenty of water.  We'll stop for lunch/snack at the top.
