I forgot to log this ascent, and only realized it when it showed on SP's "Suggested Mountains" page. lol

Good views from false summit, not so much from true summit.

Decent views from the top. Bear grass in full bloom. However, not my favorite hike. Needed blood transfusion after the mosquito onslaught at the top. Also, the dirt road in to the TH is one of the worst I've been on. Could be a good snow climb though, be back in winter.

Encountered a few patches of snow. Cloudy when we arrived at the summit so no views

Easier to see the trail coming back. Stick to the S. side.

As if I wasn't into it the last time I hiked up here, another friend who actually had never even hiked wanted to come up here. Well, ok I guess. Stopped at the false summit, which everyone pretty much calls the summit anyway. Don't think I'll ever be back- there are too many other places to go- but if you've never been, it's a great place to visit.

I've been up here so much, it's starting to feel like Si to me. Took two friends who had never been there.

Managed to squeeze this hike into a trip to Seattle for a job interview, thanks to friends who live nearby. I got the job, and am stoked to have a chance now to really explore the Cascades etc.

Starting out as a Michigan backpacker, the elevation change around here is new. Bandera was a good hike to get acclimated to WA mountain weather. Summit was in the clouds so we couldn't see anything from the top, but the trail was well marked so it wasn't a problem.

Trail's in good shape. No snow until just below the false summit.

On the way to Mason Lake so we headed up and over Bandera and down the north side, around Island Lake to Mason and then down the freeway sized trail.

Gack! It took me three tries to get to the true summit of Bandera. But I made it.

Good hike up until the bug fest once I started up the boot path off of the Ira Spring trail. Still nice views.

As full as the lot at Ira Spring TH was, I expected to see more folks on the trail, but I had a very pleasantly lonely hike. It was sunny in Seattle, but it started to sprinkle on me about an hour up. At least it waited to really pour until I was almost back at the car. This looks like it would be a fun snowshoe trip in the winter.
