August 5, 2018: Good short, steep hike with a nice 360 view at the top. The only thing worth noting is later in the hike at a grassy, open area the trail disappears, but it picks up off to the right and is easy to see with a little scanning.

I started from the Little Wenatchee River TH instead of the Irving Pass TH. Although paved most of the way the road becomes increasingly narrow. 20 cars at the parking lot - mostly backpackers heading up to Meander Meadows. There is more than one trail that can be accessed shortly after the main TH. At the first Y in the trail keep right. When you come to a second intersection it will be signed Poe Mountain trail. About 3 miles and 3000ft to the top of Poe Mtn. Great views in every direction. I followed the narrow boot path along the ridge for another 2 miles to the north side of Longfellow Mtn.
