Saturday is looking beautiful and sunny at Mount Si! Come join us for some exercise and fun.
This is the "old trail" that starts at the Little Si Trailhead. This route has far less crowds but it is steeper, so be prepared for hard work. Forecast is showing blue skies and low winds so we should see some pretty views at the top. Bring your 10 essentials, and pack extra warm clothing for lunch at the summit (stocking hat, gloves, coat, etc).
We will need a driver or two depending on how many people sign up. If you are a driver you will need a Discover Pass for your car.
Driving directions: I-90 to exit 32. Turn left over the freeway and drive 0.5 mile to North Bend Way. Turn left and in 0.25 mile turn right on Mount Si Road. Shortly after crossing the bridge, the road banks right. Just after this curve, look for a paved parking area on the left side of the road marked Little Si Trailhead.
