Take a trek up to the lookout cabin at the top of this beautiful peak in Snoqualmie Pass Follow a very steep trail for 4 miles to the summit of this tall peak alongside I-90. You will have spectacular views from the top, where there is a fire tower, of the surrounding alpine lakes and peaks. You will also have a great view of Mt. Rainier towering above all the other peaks to the south.

I love this hike. It is hard, especially if there's any snow, which will leave you with only the boulder route, that many people just can't do. I had a great time when I went alone, but when I went back wit friends, there was snow on the easy side and we didn't make it to the top. I recommend going alone or bringing determined friends.

Pretty trail, esp with the little snow that has now appeared at the top. To avoid the snow take the boulder route up!

Challenging hike with a great summit and view. Lookout is currently closed. Blue berries are ripe near the top! Bring an extra water

Did this last Tuesday 8/15 for a sunrise hike. My first time on the trail and did it in the dark...which ended up in almost 10 mi RT hike instead of the 8.6 that was listed. Started at 0305 and got up the Mt to Summit by 0602 (6min before sunrise). It was perfect.
