This was originally schedule for June 6, but I cancelled it due to rain. Lets try again!!!!
A hike up to the false summit of Bandera Mountain. A very popular moderate hike on the Ira Spring Trail high above I-90. The trail starts out on a gentle old road, changes to a moderate graded newer trail up to timberline, and then steeply ascends beargrass slopes to the ridge. There should be no snow. We will NOT be going to the actual summit, almost nobody does. Expect crowds, we will not be alone! Your leader has done this hike many times.
Approximately 8 miles round trip with 3,000 feet elevation gain.
Poles are recommended for the upper trail. Bring your 10 essentials!
Meet on the east side of the Eastgate Park & Ride on I-90 in Bellevue at 8am. We will carpool to the busy trailhead. NW Forest Parking passes are required for drivers.
Participants will be required to sign a liability waiver once per calendar year to go on my hikes, available at the P&R.
A toilet is available at the trailhead.
