Unsure of exact date. Rode my bicycle up the mountain from the state park campground at the base. Almost hit the pygmy deer on the way down!

Okay, so I didn't actually hike it. But I had done Rainier a few days prior. The view of Baker is fantastic though.

RedwicWitnessed A WA CoHP Completion  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2012


Bob Bolton (WA CoHP completer #2), Duane Gilliland (WA CoHP completer #6), Edward Earl (WA CoHP completer # 7), and I (WA CoHP completer #10)... as well as five other people (Ken, Loretta, Rhonda, Pattie, Talia) watched Dennis Poulin become the 13th WA CoHP completer. It was the largest gathering of people to watch a WA CoHP completion occur. I found the date to be strangely appropriate: "10/13" also represented the first completer of the year (me, #10) and probably the last completer of the year (Dennis, #13).

This was my second trip to Mount Constitution, and a much more festive and enjoyable occasion than my first trip there.

orandallnice hike from mtn lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 6, 2012


Very straightforward hike from parking lot at Mtn. Lake. First mile is somewhat steep - 1000 feet gain, but the remaining 2 miles only rise another 500 feet. Lots of great views on the way up. Don't see many people until you're near the summit, but then groups start to show up. Luck to have had an unseasonal clear day.

Hiked this with my girlfriend and another couple. Short and sweet with the reward of nice views of the Cascades and San Juan Islands.

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2010


Drove to the top with my kids & their grandparents. The strenuous part was climbing the tower to the highpoint. Brought the mountain bikes but trails are only opened from Sept. to May.

The first summit of any kind for my son. Absolutely beautiful 360 degree views. Easy trail, gorgeous views. Saw 10, yes *10* deer. We had an awesome, easy time.

I can't remember a lot about this trip since I was a kid. I do remember wet cotton socks from the snow and bad blisters. Not sure if I saw the summit or not.

Biked from ferry terminal. It was a hard push up that hill, but all worth it for the ride down!! ~40 miles total. Quite a bit of snow the last few hundred feet, but none on the road.

RedwicI had to work for this one...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2009


After being told the prior day that the gates would be open, leading to the summit, the first gate was closed... 3.7 miles from the summit. I hiked with a 30-lb. backpack while pushing my mountain bike (most of the ascent), then coasted down the mountain on the bike with relative ease (and speed).

From Little Summit to Mount Constitution, there was 1-2" of fresh snow (from the prior day's storm) on the road. I met three men at the summit who were surveying the metal communications tower. Apparently, the owner of the summit communications tower is tired of the vandalization happening to the tower by park visitors, and is contemplating tearing it down. But the old stone tower will remain, of course.

The views from the summit tower are breathtaking. Highly recommended summit. This was my third County Highpoint in Washington State.
