Mount Pugh Again

A few organizers have recently posted this awe inspiring day trip and I was not able to join due to time constraints. In this regard, I am posting this trip again. Please join me if you can! My contact info: [masked], or[masked]-1203. Mt Pugh (pronounced “Pew”) is 11.0 miles round trip w/ a cumulative elevation gain of over one mile. Here's the WTA link:
http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/mount-pugh Requirements for coming on this hike: - You must have already hiked Mt. Si this summer, or its equivalent (8 mi RT w/ 3,000+ feet of elevation gain). Pack a hearty lunch and an extra layer in case the weather turns wet or cold. This is my first time up this trail.
Schedule: Carpool from the McCullom P&R at 7:30am (by the pool).
Style: I’ll lead the way up and we’ll pause as-needed to keep the group together. We’ll eat lunch at the top.
Details: A NW Forest Pass is required for trailhead parking. No pets. Stay on the trail. I will check the weather forecast as the date gets closer. This is a hard hike with increased risk – please exercise caution.
Transportation: I can carry 3 passengers in my car & have 2 NW Forest Passes if anyone needs to barrow one. If you can drive and carry several passengers, that would be great. Call me if you have any questions before the day of the hike at[masked]-.1203. There will be a 15 minute courtesy wait for those who might run behind. Please bring a change of shoes and plastic bags to put your dirty shoes in for the return trip to help keep the driver's vehicles clean. Bring cash to you can share the cost of gas with your driver.
Directions to the Trailhead: Drive north on I-5 to exit 208 and go east on SR 530 toward Darrington, about 32 miles east of I-5. In Darrington, turn right on the Mountain Loop Highway (FS 20). Set your odometer to 0. At 9.5 miles, the road turns to dirt. At 13.2 miles, turn left on FR 2095, steep and rocky, toward the Mount Pugh Trailhead. At 14.8 miles, park in the flat pulloff just before the switchback. The trail begins on the high side of the switchback.
