Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2016


Many training hikes on this mountain in preparation for Rainier, most of them up the road and only as far as the trailhead.

It was fun to finally take a day and just have a leisurely hike to the summit.

Lots of people up there hiking for a Monday.

Beautiful day & great views, will probably bring visitors here.

2 hours up, 1.5 hours down (yup, I was pretty slow).

My sister and I decided to do this trip partially because she didn't have a place to stay in Seattle for the night, and partially in hopes that the weather forecast was completely wrong about all the clouds and rain. It wasn't. Left the trailhead at 6PM (yeah, we got a late start), and reached the lookout at around 7:45. Encountered snow on the last third of the trail; we had ice axes, but poles would have definitely been good enough. We shared the lookout with four others that night; a young Canadian couple and two high school girls. Made some interesting food for dinner; Alfredo really does taste better when you make it with milk. Hiked/glissaded down on Sunday morning without a hitch. Didn't get much of a view for any of the trip, but still had a good time nonetheless.

It was such a beautiful day that a late-day hike was difficult to resist. Got to the trailhead and realized I'd left my boots at home. Made it about 2 miles up the trail but even with my trekking poles and ice axe, the sneakers were just too much of a challenge on the slushy snow.

Turned around. Another day.

jaredkraussFirst WA Summit  Sucess!
Friend took us up when there was still a good amount of snow, such that he was able to teach us how to glissade. That was fun.

It was empty in the lookout, and there was a group of kids on the side of the mountain having fun sliding down the well worn glissade paths.

Week day, and the Seahawks were playing, hence the small crowd this day. Cool little hike, and enjoyed the 360 platform on the lookout tower for soaking up the views. Mountain blueberries were plentiful and delicious..

Climbed the mountain, survived the torrents of people (and at least a dozen dogs)coming up later that morning.

Late afternoon hike. The sunset was blood red and the views were amazing. Always a great hike for those who need a dose of life again.

Clear skies, no wind, and starting at first light made this an incredible and nearly solitary hike.

Climbed Pilchuck many times, it's my go-to hike when I get a mountain craving but don't have time to plan or research a new one. Not a good hike if you are seeking solitude. It's a highway of people most days. Good if it's your first solo hike! Impossible to get lost with the never ending stream of people and pets.

I've climbed Pilchuck lots of times, starting from a sixth grade field trip. I've seen the wonderful views from the top and also been up there with about 30ft visibility from fog. Sometimes in the snow and sometimes on rock. It's is a great training hike with rewarding views on nice days.
