Ever wonder what's inside all those trees on the opposite side of I-90 from Tiger Mountain? That is Grand Ridge Park and that is where we will be headed.
We will begin our hike by riding bus #554 from Seattle to the Issaquah Highlands. The trailhead is just a short walk away from the bus stop. We will walk the length of the Grand Ridge trail to Duthie Hill and back.
This hike is about 12 miles round trip, but not too much elevation gain (~500 feet or so). This hike is good for a rainy day, being pretty much entirely under trees.
