Date Climbed: Mar 30, 2014
Had never done Mailbox in the winter. This is my new favorite training hike as I don't have to drive 2hrs to get this kind of terrain and weather conditions. Very enjoyable. Second achievement, did it without any hiking poles!

Getting up is hard but getting down is torture. Hard but very rewarding.

Date Climbed: May 6, 2013
Brought a 30lb pack up to the top. Only found snow at the last rockfield. Rocks were melted out at the summit for sitting. Beautiful day with full views of Rainier to the South, Baker to the North, and Seattle to the West.

There are new (locked) bathrooms at the trailhead to go alongside a new 5 mile "gentle" trail (opening sometime 2013). I for one don't mind the grade!

First time up Mailbox Peak and first summit in Washington State. It was a strenuous hike, but not as difficult as I had anticipated based on its reputation. I counted 30 other hikers before we were even halfway. I stopped counting after that. The view from the summit was nice, minus I90 and all the other hikers at the top. We were even able to make out Seattle in the distance.

We Got our butts handed to use which is to be expected from this hike. It started with rain... And rain... And more rain and then it turned to snow just to mess with us. We got out of the tree line and my buddys hamstring decided to pull with in 500 feet of the summit. We made it but going down was absolute fun. Expect fog and about a foot and ahalf of snow when you break through the main treeline. Couldn't find the mailbox eaither but I guess it is probaly under the snow. Will for sure try again when there is less snow.

seabadgeSolo winter summit in micro spikes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 6, 2013

Knew it was the trailhead by the discarded McDonalds trash bags. Trash peak, you lived up to your name.
Thoroughly enjoyed the elevation gain, as well as the short trail run down in micro spikes. Did not enjoy the blizzard or avalanche field at the top. Attempted a sunrise hike, but the conditions put me at the summit later than expected (and no views were to be had anyhow).

Going up was not so bad, but coming down (without trekking poles) had my quads like rubber for days afterwards. Would i do it again though? Absolutely. Wonderful time with my brother.

Waaaaay too many people are on this mountain at once. this is why i stick to the olys most of the time. didnt even have a place to sit up top unless i hiked down the ridge a ways. up in 1hr 40min down in 50min.

Mountainjeffmud and ice  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2012

Started at noon and was on the summit by 2:30. Lower sections of the trail were pretty wet, but at about 3000' there started to be a significant amount of ice on the trail. Traction aids will be a good idea until the snow melts. Views were amazing from the summit. The mailbox is covered by a lot of snow and there is a dangerous cornice right near the summit.
