Oh no, not Mt Si again. Yes, but we will use the unmarked Old Trail that begins at the Little Si parking lot. It is a bit steeper, narrower, and very much less used. We will NOT be climbing the Haystack, because that is just for crazy people.
I've done this trail way too many times, most recently with a group of 70 year old midweek Mountaineers. If they did it, so can you!
Approximately 8 miles RT with 3,400' elevation gain. 2-3 hours up and 2 hours down. Moderate and social pace. No snow, I promise.
Meet at 9am on the east side of the Eastgate Park & Ride in Bellevue on I-90. We will carpool to the trailhead from there. NW Forrest Parking Pass is NOT required. Toilet at trailhead (if you dare).
