Switchback heaven but cool trail up on the ridge top. Worth the effort.

It's a long slog, but the trail is in great condition. Thankfully, we had some high clouds, so it didn't get too hot. This trail would be terribly hot and dry on a sunny day - definitely need to get an early start.

Headed up on an iffy-weather day not knowing how far we'd get. Got to within a few hundred feet of the summit, but were stopped short by a sketchy snowfield. Had lunch in the sun and then headed down, only to have the skies open up and drench us in rain for the whole hike down. 35+ fallen trees to negotiate over/under in both directions made for quite an adventure too. GPS watch recorded 13.5 miles and 5500 ft. gain/loss before running out of battery a few minutes from the bridge. Views that we saw were fantastic - definitely want to go back and get to the top on a sunny day!

Hike up was great, but ran into fog about 500 feet from the summit. Had no view - I'm sure it's nice when it's clear though.

Finally we get a sunny day in Washington and I was happy that I chose to make use of it on David. The trail is quite scenic as it snakes along the ridge between some serious obstacles and as a veiwpoint this peak is stellar. This is one I could even repeat.

Great hike!! The descent was killer on my knees, but worth the effort.

A nice hike with Maria and Bryan. Definitely not 16 miles round-trip. It might be 14 but it felt more like 12. An inch of fresh snow covered everything near the top. No views on the summit, just clouds.

I'd been interested in David since first I saw him from the summit of Mount Fernow. The weather held until the summit which was socked in with high winds and pelting rain. Despite no views to what I assume is the more interesting north, it was a very nice climb. The trail is beautifully constructed and the views from the ridge were excellent.

My dog was bitten by a timber rattlesnake on the way down. Great peak though. Story of how we got the dog back and trip report, pictures and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/washington_climbing/white_river/mount_david_014.htm

I solo dayhiked this peak in late August 94, had great weather, and didn't see a single other person on the trail all day. I guess 5000' of gain scares off most people! Very nice summit. I especially like the stone outhouse. At first, I mistook it for a gaint cairn.

16 miles and 5700' gain. A real slog to a great summit. I saw one person all day.

Duane, his 6'5" son Scott, and shorty me did the 16-mile round-trip on a disappointing weather day. The views from that summit would have to be fabulous, and a return trip for better photo opportunities is an absolute must. Great trail, and well worth the day!
