From North Bend head east on I-90 to Exit 54 which is two miles past Snoqualmie Summit. At the end of the exit ramp, turn RIGHT and proceed to the stop sign. At the stop sign, go straight and follow Hyak Drive E until you get to Keechelus Dr. Turn right on Keechelus Dr. and follow to parking. Parking will be on your right.

IF YOU ARE NOT PARKING AND GETTING DROPPED OFF AT THE RACE START LINE.
From North Bend head east on I-90 to Exit 54 which is two miles past Snoqualmie Summit. At the end of the exit ramp, turn RIGHT at the stop sign. At the next stop sign, turn LEFT on the road 906 that parallels I-90 heading East. Go past Milwaukee Ln Rd. (there are two Milwaukee Ln roads to go past), take the next RIGHT on 906 NE Rd. just before the Department of Transportation maintenance yard. After about 50 yards, you'll turn RIGHT again at the first road off to the right to Hyak Sno Park.
You'll also see small brown signs with white lettering directing you from the highway offramp to the Iron Horse State Park trailhead. If you end up at Hyak Lodge or at Keechelus Lake, you have missed the right turn heading to the Hyak parking lot. This aerial photo shows the start area - follow the orange line.
You can drop your runner off at Hyak Sno Park, but if you would like to park, we suggest you park in the free parking (details above). Otherwise, you'll need a Discover Pass, it's $10, and you can buy it onsite at the Iron Ranger Kiosk (Credit Card Only), or better yet, purchase a pass online HERE before you leave home. If you are a spectator and planning on seeing your runner on the course, you will need a Discover Pass. *YOU WILL BE TICKETED IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DISCOVER PASS.
