Hiking to the top takes time, water, switchbacks, and some boulder clambering, but it is well worth the views, air, and fresh filtered water (bring your own filtering system). We were so high at the top that when a small aircraft flew by, you could...More

We did this hike during a heat wave at the end of June. It was good to get an early start both because of the heat and because the trail does attract a lot of hikers. The drive up to the start of the trail...More

About an hour and a half north of Seattle, Mount Pilchuck is worth the trip. Steep and rocky, but short enough where its a very manageable hike. We were going at an average pace and took us about 4 hours round trip. Hiking boots are...More
