WTA Link: https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/little-si 

Water Required: Yes, 2-3L minimum, per person/animal
Gear: Hiking boots required. It will likely be cool and wet, so warm clothing (no cotton), rain jacket, and an extra pair of socks will be a good idea. There is a chance that the summit may have ice, a dusting of snow, and/or slick rocks from rain, so hiking poles and some kind of traction for shoes (yaktrax or microspikes) may be helpful, but not required.
Other: You should bring some snacks to munch on throughout the hike or during breaks. Protein bars, granola, trail mix, energy gels/chews are recommended.

Dogs: Allowed; must be on leash. May not be suitable for pups
Kids: If you are confident in their ability to hike on a trail of this magnitude, they are welcome! **Trail may be too steep for little legs towards the summit**
Men: If you must! ;) 

Pacing: We will stay together as a group for this hike, so pacing will be determined as a group! Ideally we should be done by 12:30 PM, but please be flexible. *NOTE: If you plan to separate from the group, you must check out with me before leaving!

Permits / Passes: Discover Pass - You must have a Discover Pass before showing up to the parking area, as there is no guarantee that day passes are available at the trailhead

Trailhead Coordinates / Address: 47.4878, -121.7563
Traveling on I-90 East, approaching North Bend, take exit for 436th Ave SE and turn left. Head 0.5 miles on 436 Ave SE and take a left on SE North Bend Way. Proceed 0.3 miles and turn right on SE Mount Si Road. The main parking lot for Little Si will be 0.4 miles on your left as the road straightens out after the bend (if you pass 439 Pl SE or 440 PL SE, you have driven too far). 

There is an overflow parking lot west of the main lot tucked into SE Mt Si Rd and 434 Ave SE. There is a trail connecting the two. Be warned that both lots may be full on weekends.


***As with all GWH events, you must sign the GWH waiver before attending – it takes less than a minute to sign, and once you’ve signed it once you’re good to go for all future meetups***
