funkstufGreat Views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 30, 2011


Another great place to train for higher mountains. I did this a lot with my heavy pack while training for Aconcagua. Just a note. It can be substantially colder on top than down low in the late late Fall. It can also be icy and you might want some micro-spikes for the upper part. The haystack is a fun scramble, and I did it, but being a basic hiker it made me a bit uncomfortable coming down.

Haystack is a fun scramble.

The break point before the Haystack was quite crowded, but we had the true summit all to ourselves

Beautiful foggy scenery on the way up, crazy thunderstorm on the way down. Very enjoyable!

Cloudy up top with no view, but still a nice hike and workout.

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2014


I was visiting my sister in Seattle and wanted a half day hike, so this fit the bill. I was expecting crazy crowds but since it wasn't a weekend, it wasn't too bad. Perfect weather and great views. Scrambling up Haystack was fun, coming back down not so much! A good day.

Date Climbed: Mar 6, 2005


Drought year, no snow in early March. Nice sunny day. Took a group of scouts up the Haystack, they had fun with it. Named the last little pitch to the summit the "Hobbit Step" after one of them. Support Team Sushi hiking on the trail far below, but within radio contact.

Relaxing jaunt to the summit and beyond. Made some four legged furry friends on the ridges to the northwest.

Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2014


I really enjoyed the hike. We went up the old trail to avoid the mob of people going up and down and that was a good call. It was very foggy once we reached the summit so I saw nothing but cloud. I will have to do it again as I hear the view is amazing. I have seen the view from Rattlesnake mountain which is just across the valley.

Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2014


There were around 200 people with permits for the mountain today. I parked at the marble mount sno park last night and there were about 40 vehicles there for the night. Started climbing at 0330 to beat the crowds and I think I was the first person to get to the true summit for the day. Beautiful weather with views as far as Mt Jefferson.

Date Climbed: Dec 21, 2013


Visibility about twenty feet, slushy conditions, and just not feeling great - had spent almost four hours hiking up the trail to the base of the haystack.
Did have fun hanging out with a swarm of grey jays who tried to steal my lunch, and one pika that was afraid of the jays.

locke456One Of My Favorite Dayhikes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2011


Easily accessible off of the highway, Mount Si is an absolute blast of a hike, which suddenly turns into a challenging (but not TOO challenging) scramble at the Haystack. Highly recommended. Also, stop by Twede's in North Bend for cheap, delicious calories either before or after (or both!) and you've got yourself a perfect dayhike.

I use this hike for training. I don't actually like it. Too popular.

The hike to the Haystack is well maintained and easy for everyone to use. The hard part is the Haystack. For me going up all those rocks was not a big deal. I just new that it was going to be difficult to scramble down.

Made it to the top very quickly (pushed by a seriously in-shape friend) and enjoyed the amazing view on a beautiful, clear and sunny day. Spent an hour at the top of the haystack without seeing a single person. We were also lucky enough to spot and share some time with a good sized mountain goat :)

Clear skies to the west and ominous clouds stirring about to the east made for an eerie final ascent.

jacobsmithM2-3?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 7, 2013


Climbed w/ Kati as a training thing, actually my first time going to the top of the haystack. the scamble route was covered with about three inches of fresh snow, with the older underlying stuff and ice in some areas, it was a tricky scramble, as each hold had to be excavated, and an even trickier downclimb. any hairier and i would have wanted crampons and ice tools. based on my limited mixed climbing experience, i would say it was around an M2-3 in these conditions.

JoelSkokGreat destination  Sucess!


Has all the elements--short drive to get there, year round access, old growth approach, gymnastic finish on the Haystack, great views, great workout. Done it many times, even as a kid with my neighbors and their Toy Manchester dog named Goliath
