Poe is one of my favorites. Just wouldn't recommend trying it in late October without traction and/or snow shoes. A dusting of snow most of the way up to the ridge and then patchy remnants of the heavy snow from a couple weeks ago. Some spots facing the north were very deep. After post- holing for a while near the false summit we gave up. The views are never disappointing and so peaceful with literally no one on the trail.

Good hike, first half or so is covered, second half is exposed. Make sure to bring bugspray, and maybe a windbreaker for the top. Not much parking at the trailhead. Great views once you clear the trees!

Don't make the mistake of stopping at the 6,000 ft knob if you're coming from the Irvine Pass side. Also, bring bug juice.

Some snow patches at the top, but made it to the top in tennis shoes without any problems. Views at the top were incredible.

Foggy. Not much views. Good workout but easier than expected.

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.

Beautiful views of many peaks. Hike right on top of the ridge. Lots of wildflowers.
