First half of the trail is actually a part of famous Pacific Crest Trail. The trailhead is located on 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. View from the top is great. Most of surrounding mountains are easily visible, including Granite Mountain, Snoqualmie Mountain, Catherine Mountain, Tinkham Peak, etc.

Great trail. Scrambles, forest walks, and summit! This was not hard at all. All the steep uphill trekking is almost immediately met with flat meadows. Not the easiest but certainly not hard. The road up was filled w pot holes and washouts but if U take your time, almost any car will make it.

We had great weather. Easy trail for the first mile or two. Take a right at the poorly marked trail to loop back up to the peak. There begins the grunt. Great spot for lunch.

Definitely one of my favorites, the change in environment is consistent from dense forests to nothing but straight rock (fist sized gravel) that you climb through the last bit till you reach summit. Full panorama view of all mountain ranges from every direction. True mystic!
