This trail is experiencing full or partial closure due to COVID-19. Please see the open trails nearby for alternate hiking options. The first half of the trail is actually a part of the famous Pacific Crest Trail. The trailhead is located at the intersection of National Forest Development Road 9070 and the Pacific Crest trail, and direction to Silver Peak is to South from the intersection. After hiking about 1.7 miles, there is a fork, which doesn't have any sign, so can be missed easily. However, there is a rock pyramid at the entry point, which can be a good mark to look for. The second part of trail is much steeper, and requires some kind of scrambling closer to the top of Silver Peak. The view from the top is great. Most of surrounding mountains are easily visible, including Granite Mountain, Snoqualmie Mountain, Catherine Mountain, Tinkham Peak, etc. The road to the trailhead is rough. An SUV is recommended.

Bring in some spikes and maybe even crampons for the top snow area if you’re not experienced. Tons of snow at the top, but one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve seen in my life. You get a lot out of this for being such a short hike.

Views from the top were great! The last mile got very steep and turned into a rock scramble. Road is very rough driving in
