Summited the West peak after work. Nice gissades on the drop, and a great sunset to top it off.

bmwboarder7Still Huckleberries!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2009


Beautiful sunny day. The steepness after the trail splits off surprised us, but was fun nonetheless. The views of the lakes and Defiance and tons of other mtns was absolutely great. Made it to the true summit where we didn't see anyone else, or even any footprints. Grazed on huckleberries between the false summit and the true summit.

The road is all cleaned up now and you can park at the TH again.

My wife and I finally got over to Bandera Mountain after about a year or so of it being on our list. We only went to the "false" summit or Little Bandera Mountain, as we wanted to relax and cook some food with great views. The "bootpath" to the true summit was faint at best. We'll head back up to tag the true summit eventually. The views along the way were some of the most spectacular that I've seen from an I-90 peak.

As with most mountains in this area, the views were amazing. The trail to the Mason Lake junction is ridiculously easy, it gets fun after that point.

As of today, the road to the TH is funky in five places, three of which are currently marked with construction sandwich board signs and tape. The final washout on the road is pretty good, but anyone with a four wheel drive and some clearance should have no issues getting to the TH.

I finally made it all the way to the true summit! A fun trip on a beautiful day when the weather predictions were clouds and rain. The snow slopes down from the ridge were the perfect angle and softness for excelent foot glissades.

This trip served to refresh my memory about the miseries of hiking in the rain.

Just did this hike yesterday, and the weather was absolutely perfect. The traffic on the trail definitely thinned out at the turn-off for Bandera, and it was nice and clear at the top. Nice views of Rainier and Seattle in the distance.

RedwicSome Trail!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2007


After the trail junction, the hike becomes STEEP for a while. Then there are several spots with nice views of Mason Lake. It's easy to realize why most hikers do not go to the true summit. There are several points which could be considered as "false summits", and the trail(s) (I use that term loosely) between them and the true summit occasionally disappears & requires minor bushwhacking. A GPS is helpful. You should be both physically fit & adventurous to go to the true summit.

TheBootfitterWine & Pretzels...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2007


Had a good hike. We intended to take the old climbers' trail, but must have missed it. Just under two hours up. 45-minutes at top to enjoy pretzels and a bottle of wine, then about an hour back down.
