NO views that day. Cloudy.
Decided to hike Mount Walker in the early afternoon shortly after finishing Mount Zion. Played with the Gray Jays at the summit then had a good brisk run back to the car. Walker was definitely the more scenic of the two hikes we did.
After doing the Dead Fall route on Mount Zion, we still had some energy so we hiked up in 53 minutes and ran down in 25 minutes.
Why hike when so few mountains have roads? Let's appreciate our roads as much as our trails.

Only two other folks on the trail. The trail was in great shape all the way to the top. Great views at both overlooks.
with whole family in tow
Nice drive up with Dean.
Rose and Juptiter, 20 miles and over 7000 feet of gain in under 24 hours was not enough for Redwic so he suggested that we drive up for an easy 3rd summit. What a weekend!
I hiked the Mount Walker Trail, roundtrip, including visits to both viewpoints. Some low-lying clouds covered some mountain views, but at least some of the major peaks nearby (Mount Constance, Warrior Peaks, Cloudy Peak) were visible. For such a low-elevation mountain, I was pleasantly surprised and would go back again.
