We will hike south on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) from the Snoqualmie Pass south trailhead up and across the Summit West ski area. We will hike to the turnaround point at the road of Windy Pass.  This is an easy hike at 1,500 ft. elevation, but hiking approximately 10 miles makes it moderately difficult. 

We will hike at an approximate 2 mph pace.
