This is a great quick hike. I was able to tuck this in even in mid-November with just a dusting of snow on a clear and cool autumn day. It is harder to find a higher views to effort ratio in the Cascades than what this one offers.
Possible the first mountain I climbed Date Climbed: Aug 1, 1986
When I was 12 with a church group. I can't remember much but I'm willing to guess I didn't go to the very top...although I do remember our church group leaders yelling at us at the summit to be careful and get down? I do remember puking my McMuffin out at the trailhead.
