Sauer's Mountain is a 5.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Peshastin, Washington that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is best used from April until September. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
From US 2 highway intersection to Peshastin take Main Street. Main street becomes North Road as you leave the town. Past the winery and before the cemetery turn right into Anderson Canyon Road. Drive 0.7 mile to the trailhead. The trailhead is on the left..
So, this is steep and the trail is narrow...with some areas that have drop offs. If you are afraid of heights, hike with extreme caution. Beautiful views of Leavenworth and the Enchantments.
Gorgeous trail with beautiful wild flowers. About 4 miles up hill and 4 miles back.
It was a beautiful day. Great weather . It is quite a hike if you aren't expecting the climb. But we totally enjoyed it and would do it again!
This was my first hike ever! Absolutely amazing
Lovely trail. Wildflower were in abundance, and very fragrant. Met Mr. Sauer himself back at the parking lot. Very friendly and knowledgable fellow. Lots of energy for an 86 year old! Trail was not too busy, but we were there on a Friday just before 9:00 am. Took the main trail, and got to the top in about 1 hr and 5 min. Very similar time coming back down, as there are some sandy sections.
Beautiful trail all the way to the top. This trail doesn't lack at all on the wildflowers. My friend and I were out there on May 6th, we saw Marmots, deer, salamandars, chipmunks, butterflies, and a woodpecker. The trail is beautifully maintained, but is very narrow, if your afraid of heights this might not be the trail for you. There isn't much shelter from the sun so you may want to pack sunscreen, and sunglasses, and bring extra water. I thought it was an easy trail, if your not use to a lot of elevation or don't like elevation, this could be moderate to strenuous for you.
Absolutely breathtaking with the wild spring flowers.
Fun hike and got to talk with the man this is named after! 86 years young and still out cutting trail@
Fun hike...and moderate is a good rating. If heights really bother you, this will be challenging as there are several stretches where the trail is VERY narrow and on the side of a very steep, very long grade. Falling at that point would result in a fast, long slide...most likely ending badly. But the hike is fun and views at the top and along the way are great. April is a good time to go.
Great hike! Perfect 3hours to spend on a nice day.
Very solid. Short and steep with nice views. A slow run up but a fast and fun descent. Perfect for a late March mountain trail while the others nearby are still covered in snow. No snow here.
A great day to be outdoors! Such a beautiful place
