breauxtrahntwo of three trails  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2004


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.

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2007


Used the upper trailhead, pretty crowded on the trail, kind of a zoo on top, but still very beautiful. I gotta learn to not go on summertime weekends.

Townsend via the Dirty Face Ridge trail. Great easy to reach summit but go early to beat the crowds.

Beautiful hike in the mist until the last few hundred vertical feet. Amazing views of the peaks to the west.

Greg P. and I made a day trip of it. The weather has been exceptionally good for late October and we had views of Baker, Shuksan, Whitehorse, Three Fingers, Glacier, Rainier, Iron, Mystery, Deception, and Gray Wolf just to name a few.

awilsondcSummit via Upper Trailhead  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2008


Nice little hike to get some exercise and check out a good view. I got a late start (4:30) but was glad I did as the trailhead was packed from the weekend crowd. Fun hike, and I liked the paved road for most of the drive in.

My husband and I have been up Mt Townsend many times. We tend to take route I,1. I recently took a girlfriend up there and she was in awe. Love the views.

MountainjeffDeep Snow
Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2006


Road too snowy to drive closer than 1/2 mile from the lower trailhead. No one had snowshoed any further than the upper trailhead since the last snow. Trailbreaking in about 16-18 inches of heavy powder. Very slow going, so I only got about half way to the top. I'll try again later.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 1998


Started at the lower trailhead with Kyle (9) due to confusion with the USFS road numbering. Reached the summit in 3 hours on beautiful day and saw the Blue Angels flying over Seattle across the sound.

NavySeabeeTownsend Creek Route  Sucess!


Hiked the summit in the summers of 1992 and 1993. Loved the views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and Mt. Baker and other Cascade Volcanos. Nice relatively high vantage point in only 5 short miles.

Great views. Loved the long summit. Was able to get many views. Saw an eagle on the north summit rocks. Was amazing!
