First things first, parking like anywhere in Seattle is terribly hard to find. This is a very popular and beautiful hike just 40 minutes east of Seattle, Washington. Even though it is 

This hike features a steady incline nearly the entire way up. About a quarter of the way into the hike, there is a nice, flat area with a couple benches making this a great place for a break. About a mile farther up the mountain, shortly before the half way point there is a small informational area which also makes another great break point before the second half of the climb. 

Once you reach the rocks at the top you can choose to stat at the base of them, however you will miss out on all of the views that Mt. Si has to offer. There is some danger involved when trying to scramble up the rocks, however if you take it slow, you should be fine. 

This hike should take anywhere from 3-5 hours depending on breaks. 

This hike during non-summer months generally is sopped in clouds due to the hikes elevation.
