Kachess Ridge, French Cabin Mountain, Dromerie Ridge Loop

A 12 mile loop trip starting near the Kachess Lake Dam following Dromerie Ridge over Thomas Mountain, then over the south and west peaks of French Cabin Mountain. We'll finish the loop by following the Kachess Ridge trail back to our starting point. If time allows, we may also ascend to the site of the Kachess Beacon. The total elevation should be about 3000 feet unless we go to the Beacon, which would add about another 1100 feet. Unlike the last few hikes I organized, driving time from Seattle to the trailhead should be less than 90 minutes. Yay!! We will leave the Park and Ride no later than 7:10 AM. If you are going to be late please call me on my cell phone: [masked] 2832.

    It was a very hard hike, as the trail was difficult to distinguish much of the time, there were endless straight ups and down and blowdowns; I lost count of as we were going under logs or over them alot of the way, but the view was incredible worth every step I felt that Alan was excelent at finding the right direction even though the trails were not obvious at times. I'm glad I did this hike, it was a great adventure.

    Unfortunately, I cannot go on Thursday as originally planned and so I have changed the day of the hike to Tuesday August 12th. Hopefully, that will work for everyone who has already signed up. If not please accept my apology. Let me know if you can come on Tuesday.

      Mmmm, Tuesday, Tuesday... let me think. I don't think I'll be here Tuesday so no worries but will change my RSVP now and if things change for me, I'll let you know. Cheers Alan and have fun!

    Can someone pick me up at the Issaquah transit, not very far away. Bus does not go to meetup location.
