Join Hiking with Geeks, Seattle for a beautiful 11 mile(s) hike, and meet some fellow geeks!
Enjoy great views, wildflowers, and berries! This is a strenuous hike with a large elevation gain: Please read the WTA hike description linked and read the trip reports there carefully before RSVPing. There are no reliable water sources on the trail until the lake, so bring at least two liters of water. You’ll be ascending “uphill both ways” (we will descend into a basin to apprach the lake, which means we’ll also have to climb back out of it). A group may also choose to stay at the top and enjoy the veiws.
• The event start time is the gathering time. Please meet at the Round Lake trail head at that time. We’ll leave promptly 15 minutes after the scheduled start time (to give some cushion for late arrivers while still respecting everyone’s time). We’ll hike the trail and get to know each other along the way.
• For those that want to grab a bite after our hike, we’ll make plans to grab a bite to eat if there’s interest.
