To Hike Map

on Mount Si Trail

1 day ago

Beautiful! Lots of snow at the top today. Glad I brought my spikes.

Definitely a tough hike. Went up the old trail and down the new. Old trail was pretty wet/muddy for the first 1.5miles. snow and ice the last mile. Snow was super soft the last half mile push and was tough even with microspikes. the new trail seems exceptionally easy albeit long after the steep climb up. Fun and challenging trail though.

Light rain the whole time. Well marked trail, friendly folks and close enough to the city to get an aggressive training hike.

Heading back soon as I was unable to complete due to work ;( Expect this trail to take a minimum of 3 hours at a decent pace (3 mph average)

Not a bad little trail. My first ever Washington hike. Very nice!

A great challenge and beautiful view! I did not need crampons at the top after Monday’s sunny day it was mostly melted and slushy.

I really liked the difficulty of the hike and that almost no one was there, even on a sunny, warm day. I can let my dog off and really enjoy myself. I only went up about 2.5 miles but it was a perfect first hike of the year. I will definitely return because of the difficulty, lack of people and close proximity to my home.
It was a little muddy but it rained several days in a row before I hiked.

Awesome hike! We had a pretty warm day yesterday and a lot of the snow melted at the top. I put my spikes on to walk 20 feet then took them off. Stay on the pinestraw and you're all set, the spikes were over kill IMO.

Awesome..made it today inspite if severe snow storm & rain...

Excellent hike! My bootie raised two inches this day. Be sure to wear spikes there is still ice and snow at the summit

Very crowded. Nice hike.

Great sunrise hike or afternoon hike. Crowded.


Beautiful old forest

Beautiful views on the way up and at the top. It was a little snowy towards the top and I fell a few times when hiking down but no serious injuries sustained! Lol. I’ll wear hiking boots next time. Easy, fun, beautiful hike.

Amazing view. Truly amazing. Hike was steep, but pretty. The destination is definitely worth going for.

It was sunny today, but there were a lot of people on this trail for a Monday. This is about as difficult as my family can handle for now. Great view at the top.

Fun trail to walk, and great view!

trail was packed. quite the hike up on a hot day. nice views at the top.

Nice trail for kids in dogs. Super flat road! Wish I was a little bit easier to get to the river!

Done it for first time twice in one day part of our training for Himalayas. 8.000 ft vertical gain and descent in a day is not bad. The trail is great experience and training ground to. The old trail requires a level of fitness but is doable for a beginner in shape. Amazing you have perfect phone signal.

Beautiful hike. Must bring crampons during this time of year to get to the top.

Trail is in great shape for this early. Ran into snow at the creek and again about a half mile short of Prospect, but it was easily navigable with hiking shoes and poles. Snow was about 2 feet deep at Prospect.

Beautiful park with a lot of opportunity for quieter hiking. Mountain bikers frequent the trail, but are courteous and only hike one way! Quite a few open clearings if you push up towards the summit.

Steady gain in elevation. Perfect if you’re looking for a low-key morning workout. Hiking boots, poles, and crampons are a must if you want to make it to the top. The snow pack gets pretty slick as you get higher up!

Wife and I did this trail this morning and had a great time. The parking lot was fairly full but the trail was never close to being anywhere near crowded. The weather was just right with it only being a bit cool towards the top. I was hesitant at first about bringing crampons but certainly glad I did. I got a kick out of watching all those in sneakers skidding and sliding around trying to not fall on their butt or worse off the trail. Overall it was a fun hike and would recommend it.

Limited parking so go early. Good trail. creek crossing a bit tricky but the views at end are worth it. would do this again.

A very fun trail with awesome views on sunny days. Well worth the trip to get here.

This hike was probably at the time, the most strenuous hike I’ve ever went on. It starts easy looping up but the incline starts to kick in probably 20 minutes in. Once you make it to the top.... the view is absolutely breathtaking. We sat there for hours. Start early, if not.. no later than 2pm. This hike takes about 2 hours. Great for photography shots. Seriously an Instagram worthy spot.

On March 10th a Friend and I climbed to the top of Mount Si. Here is a video i made along the way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0tvffyzSH8&t=3s We began hiking at 6:00am from the main trailhead, it was 29 degrees, clear skies and only a few cars in the parking lot. About 2ish miles up the trails we stopped and i put on my crampons, microspikes would have also worked a little while later we made it to the top of Mount Si through a near vertical scramble. I would only attempt this if you have crampons or an ice axe as it was a little hairy!! The cornices at the top weren't terrible but still stay away from the edge. We stayed at the top for a little bit took a few photos and then began working our way back down the views were incredible, not a cloud in the sky only a little windy. On the way down we encountered a TON of people we couldn't hike for more than one minute without seeing another group of people headed up the trail. We reached the trailhead around 11:00 and it was full. Again here is the video i took on the hike: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0tvffyzSH8&t=3s

Be safe out there,
