Intergenerational Hike to Tradition Lake

with No Comments

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2 P.M., meet at the Tradition Lake trailhead

For the second intergenerational hike, intrepid hiker Betsy Bell has chosen a route that’s friendly to seniors and preschoolers. We’ll meet at the Tradition Lake trailhead at the end of the road at High Point exit off I-90. This includes the Swamp Trail which has a fun series of story boards about Zoe and the creatures in the area, the Ruth Kees Big Tree and Tradition Lake trails, about 2.5 to 3 miles with almost no elevation gain and a couple of good places to stop for prayer and song.

See a map of the trail route here.

Please note: If you are interested in going, please email Canon Wendy Barrie in advance, and she will reply with her cell phone number. 

Hike a series of short, nearly level trails that offer views of two lakes and of some swampy areas, and pass one of the largest trees in the Tigers. Appreciate the forest vegetation and wildflowers. Along the way, hear and perhaps see a variety of song birds and waterfowl.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. How do I get there? The trailhead is about a 30-minute drive from the cathedral. A few miles east of Issaquah on I-90. Take exit 20 for High Point; turn south on 270 Ave SE. Learn more about the trailhead location and the route at the Washington Trails Association.
  2. Is carpooling available? If you would like to carpool, go for it. There is not a formal carpool arrangement. 
  3. What should I bring? We definitely recommend good hiking boots, water and snacks. It’s a good idea to check out other recommended essentials. See this list and overview from REI: What to bring Day Hiking and other essentials
