Mountain Moonrise Party: Rattlesnake Ridge

 

Moonrise Party:  RattleSnake Ridge

Come join all of my very best friends at the top of Rattlesnake Ridge (45min light to moderate hike)...then a wonderful view and moonrise:)

What: Hike Rattlesnake Ridge (pubic trail & well identified)

When: Sept 19th, 2013 (weekday for those who work!), moonrise @ 7:08pm

Party: At the top, let's meet there.  I usually stay for 1-2hr after moonrise

Where: See link

Getting There

Take I-90 east and get off on Exit 32 (436th Avenue SE) just past the exits to North Bend. Take a right off of the exit, heading south on 436th Ave SE which turns into Cedar Falls Road. Travel about three miles and follow the signs posted for Rattlesnake Lake.

Remember traffic can be tricky!

What do you need to know/bring:

DO NOT PARK IN CAMPGROUNDS.  They lock the gate.  Someone got stuck last month. Park outside the park (lot before campgrounds or on the street)

Hike with a friend, connect with someone:)  Get a date or at least ask:)

Bring water, bring a light, bring a snack or lobster (you will want to eat)

Wear layers (could be cold and windy on top)...cotton kills!  Bring wind resistance and warmth:)  Hopefully weather is great.

I can't tell you to bring alcohol...I can tell you that I will be bringing something to share with a few.

Remember the 10 hiking essentials. http://www.nynjtc.org/content/10-hiking-essentials

Let's have a blast!

Hiking Time to Rattlesnake Ridge: 1 hour
Miles: 4 Round trip
Elevation gain: 1,175 feet

Accepting participation is a personal decision and all risks bear your sole responsibility.  I hope you all understand the risks of hiking and all legal liability remains your personal responsibility. 

Please do not drink and drive.  I will have a driver available for anyone to purchase if they become intoxicated or need assistance.

      My work place is by I-90 entrance (near Uwajimaya in International District). Is that pretty easy to get to? Here's my number:[masked]

      Erica, do you have a room for one more person?
      I was thinking about driving by myself but it makes sense to carpool. I live close to Bitter lake, can meet at any place with parking (like Greenlake park & ride).
      Or I could pick up 1-2 ppl to ride with me.
