Derek and I did a moderate (7.2 miles, 4.5 hours, 2,900 feet of elevation gain) hike today. We met at 6 at the Poo Poo Point trail parking lot, left my car there and drove to the Cable Line Trail Head.
You can see on the visualization below we took a complicated route up to Tiger 2 summit, and we started on the famous Cable Line trail. I was just at Tiger 2 a few weeks ago with the Saturday crew, but we came from a different direction.
We took an unmaintained trail down from the Tiger 2 summit and finally hooked up with Poo Poo Point. This is a popular spot for paragliders.
And it has an interesting view of Issaquah and the surrounding lakes and lower mountains:
After the hike we went to Derek and Jill’s place in Snoqualmie for a delicious Thanksgiving brunch. Delicious french toast made from croissants – voila!
I expect to hike in the snow on Saturday to Mason Lake – probably at least a foot up there by now and it should be fun.
