Join me on a hike to the top of Mt Defiance high above I-90. The snow should be gone and the summit meadow busting out with flowers.
We will go up the Ira Spring Trail to Mason Lake, hike up the ridge trail to the meadow, then a short steep side trail to the top. Great views on top. I've done this trip many times, one of my favorites.
Stats: 10 miles and 3,500' elevation gain. 3-4 hours up, 3 hours down.
Meet 7am on the east side of the Eastgate Park & Ride on I-90 in Bellevue. We will carpool to the busy trailhead. NW Forest Parking Pass is required for drivers. Toilet available at the trailhead.
