Great training hike for Rainier. Loaded up packs and went to the top. Got back just in time for the rain to start DUMPING.

Couldn't believe how many people there were in shorts, tennis shoes, and NO WATER or JACKETS doing this in March. Come on people use your heads and go half way prepared please

nice morning out with Oyvind- good conversation as we both tested new boots, enjoyed the views, dreamed of bigger routes, parenting perfectly and solved societies problems.

juneauhikerProper footwear?  Sucess!


We saw people with shoes ranging from plastic mountaineering boots to vibram 5 fingers with lots of tennis shoes and hiking boots in between. Had fresh snow not covered the last 500' I don't doubt we would have seen chacos or tevas too.

I used to hike mailbox peak every weekend with 20lbs pack trying to beat my previous time. Hiking mail box every weekend really helped me in preperation for the Swiss and French alps this past summer.

Awesome shorty peak. Another one done solo. Had a little bit of everything. Route finding, snow and ice travel, 35-45 mph wind gusts... perfect. Felt like a way bigger mountain. It truly doesn't feel like only 4,800 ft. Bravo Mailbox, bravo.

This was a decent mountain of the easier peaks. Even in late April the mailbox was snowed over.

jonahmanningphone home???  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 30, 2010


Last time I went up (early Sept, 2010) there was a 35lb dumbbell up at the summit. This time it was gone, however, replaced by a small phone booth (Oct 30, 2010). Wonderful I thought, since my mother is passed on, this should be the perfect spot to make a call to heaven. Inexplicably, the call did not go through. If anyone is more successful, please let me know.

Got to the top, Looked around. Looked in the Mailbox and noticed it was quite full. I especially found the emergency cigarette to be humorous.

TimmyCMud and crowds  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2010


Most of my outings this spring have been almost people-free. Days like today remind me that, oh yeah, it's June. Big crowds, dozens of off-leash dogs tearing about, and LOTS of mud. The middle third of the trail -- or what's left of it -- is a huge mess. Not sure I understand the attraction of this trail. I mean, it's pretty and all and it's close to town, but... maybe I should try it again midweek. At least it was a nice day and we got an early start.

It's a long shot but if you left a REI size L underlayer at the top, give me a shout, otherwise it's going to goodwill. Also, when you hit talus go straight up; the trail continuing through the forest @ ~4200' is treacherously icy. No snow on trail asides from that.

Boonie1Just me.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 2, 2010


Just me on top. It may have been the freezing wind and snow, but it sure was peacefull.

Not sure when I did it... sometime in 2008 between February and April. I encountered some bad vibes from other guys up there and a climbing group that thought they owned the mountain for a day. You know how that goes. It was a great day otherwise. Good views and nice hike. Needed my ice axe for the last bit.

ericwillhiteYes, another one of these  Sucess!


Another Washington peak where you spend 4,000 feet of climbing in the woods for a few hundred feet of climbing with views. http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington/north_bend/mailbox_peak/hike_trail_187.htm

Fun get to know you hike. It was good exercise and you didn't have to focus and could just chat while hiking.
