Decided at the last minute to drive from Olympia and do Townsend finally. I got there pretty late, and charged up. The views were stupendous. I could see every volcano from Baker to Hood. A rewarding hike for the amount of effort required, I'll be back.

Was supposed to go kayaking in the sound but it was blowing a good 45 knots so opted for a hike instead. Was a blast with some good snow cover on top (brand new as we were hiking) and the winds made the summit more intense. Short beautiful views through the cloud cover.

Topped out with 30 of my closest friends in a Troop 230 afternoon outing from Camp Parsons. Cooked chicken wraps for dinner at a beautiful overlook. We love the Olympics

Good day trip up from the northern, higher trailhead. Nice walk up through the trees and out on top. Beautiful sun all day long, a little hazy for far off views but into the Olympics was beautiful. More people than I have been used to in my Olympic travels but a good hike nonetheless.

One of my all time favorite day hikes. I've done this hike at least five times and the view from the summit never gets old.

There is snow on the road starting at the cutoff for the lower trailhead. We managed to drive to the upper trail head with chains and 4x4. It will not take much more snow to make this impassible. Due to the lengthy temperature inversion, there is not a huge amount of snow and the trail is solid ice. I used crampons for the hike. Some sort of traction device is needed. I popped above the clouds at about 5000ft and the views were amazing. Total time round trip was around 5 hrs.

I hiked the route up Dirty Face Ridge. This is supposed to be a less popular route but I saw a lot of people on it. Clouds moved along the ridge all day.

A nice hike up Townsend and the easy scramble up Welch Peak, which I recommend. Great views.

This summit has the most amazing views of both worlds. I would absolutly hate to do this hike if there were no views. One direction is the sound and the other is the mountains. I had very clear skies so I was able to see Adams and Rainier. There was a third one that I think may have been Hood even??? Not to sure on that one though.

First time I took the Mt Townsend Trail, and personally wasn't taken with it. Then in '09 went on the trail from the Northeast side and enjoyed it much more, except for having no views and snow on the way down.
