A nice trail on a nice day  Sucess!

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.

Hobbit Step  Sucess!

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.

Hot and Sunny  Sucess!

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

Loved it  Sucess!

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.

Worm Flows route  Sucess!

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.

skipped the Haystack

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.

One Of My Favorite Dayhikes  Sucess!

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.

...  Sucess!

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

Mount Si and Haystack  Sucess!

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.

Perfect Weather  Sucess!

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 :)

Snowing on Stack  Sucess!

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

M2-3?  Sucess!

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.

Great 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

Good way to start the new year!  Sucess!

We took the back route up to the top on New Year's Day. Tons of snow, which made for a tricky descent. Not too much traffic (surprisingly).

Great Workout  Sucess!

Its a great close-to-home workout with a scramble for a treat at the end.
