Outdoor Activities Edit

Take a right at North Bend way in the old historic center of town. Take a left at Mt. Si. road. Follow the signs to the parking for Little Si., which is on your left after you cross the steel bridge.
    • To get to Rattlesnake Ledge, take I-90 east to exit 32. Follow Cedar Falls road to Rattlesnake Lake on the right. The trailhead is not hard to find from the parking lot. A shorter trail the other way heads to Seattle Water's education center.
