    I will soo be there. Just to clarify, do we meet at the Chirico trail – parking lot…or do we meet at the high school parking lot?? Look forward to meeting you all!

    The mileage is roundtrip – elevation gain is total climb up to the viewpoint so figure on 1.72 miles oneway and 1755′ gain. Roughly 1,000′ per mile which is just a little bit steeper than Mt Si trail.

    WARNING: traffic cameras sending automated tickets for over 20MPH along the road past Issaquah High School, so be sure to cover your license plates with something on the way in.

    Are there any more specific directions to the chirico trailhead?
    I’ve never been there before, and am unsure of what to do after step 4 above…..

    Added a little visual aid from Google Maps to mark the parking lot, so no one gets lost before we even get started ;^)

    I reading on line reports that 3.7 is one way – roundtrip 7.4. Can anyone reslove this difference for me? Thanks!

    @runningbird:
    The high school route which we are not taking is approx 7.4mi, the Chirico Trail route that we’re using tonight shaves nearly 4mi from the hike.
