Sauk - wonderful hike with views beginning at parking lot. Switchbacks along the open face of the mountain the entire way. Wildflowers abound. :) Have hiked many times, usually take first timers here.

I took my little kids up there, and they will always remember it. The views are amazing from the trail head, but they get better from the top. Love this hike.

Cascade Scrambler

Went up with a photographer friend who wanted some shots of Baker. The trip up felt even shorter the second time; I don't know how much shorter it can actually feel, as it goes by super quick. Once again, bagged the true summit. Took a video of me jogging back from the true summit to the false summit; it's pretty awesome. Saw lots of Marmots.

Lots of smoke from the fires in central Washington, but lovely views anyway. Lunch on top at the former lookout.

RedwicFirst Dock, And Then Sauk  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2012


After an early morning trip to Dock Butte, my daughter and I went to Sauk Mountain. I wore her toddler backpack the entire way to the summit ridge, before I did the final scramble to the true summit. I quickly returned back to the main trail, and then my daughter and I had a great lunch together in a small depression next to some snowbanks. Several marmots were running around and shrieking. Great weather, great route, great views... but bad blisters (due to worn-out socks).

From the false summit, just stay on top of the ridge the entire way. There's one slightly airy move that feels worse going over to the true summit than coming back. There's no need to drop down off the ridge crest, it's more work than necessary. Nice views, fun short scramble. Bagged Dock Butte afterwards.

setrentA great trip  Sucess!
Have climbed multiple times, both in winter and spring. This was one of Dallas Kloke's favorite winter climbs; easy access and as challenging as you want.

Fun to traverse the false summits. Don't kick rocks on your car from the top!

Sauk, beautiful wildflowers - if you go for that sort of thing. Ah, to be back in the Cascades.

beaudaddy85Nice!!!  Sucess!

I really enjoyed this one for its easy effort, short scramble at the end vs. big open, alpine views.

Its a beautiful area and if someone had some extra time on their hand it looked like it would be interesting to explore Sauk Lake and Bald Mountain.

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.

ericwillhitePossible the first mountain I climbed  Sucess!
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.

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2008


The true summit! This goes from a relaxing dayhike to a short but intense Class 3 scramble at the very end.

To top with my wife and three kids (13,13 and 6 years old). Not to true summit, however. Incredible wildflowers in August.
