Anti-Aircraft Peak

April 01, 2014

April 1st I started Tuesday night hikes with a few friends after work. Only Craig made it for the first hike to Anti-Aircraft Peak.

Lake Sammamish from Anti-Aircraft Peak

We parked at 10TET66806465 (NAD27) and took Clay Pit Rd to Klondike Swamp Trail. The hike was pretty much flat until we turned onto Lost Beagle Trail where we gained 240 ft in 0.7 miles (according to the green trails map). We took the cut over to Tibbetts Marsh then went north to Shangri La Trail. From there it was a short walk to the view point. Coming back down we took Anti-Aircraft Ridge down instead of Lost Beagle and Klondike.
