Fresh late season snowfall of about 8 inches all the way down to the trailhead. Made for a very pretty trip.
Nice hike, Trail is in much better condition than I had heard. Will come back on a day when the weather is better.
Did this one on a rainy day. Nothing special, but good for a workout. No views. Lots of people hiking in blue jeans, t-shirts, converse shoes etc despite the downpour. The main page says 12 miles round trip, but I counted 8.5 and ~3250 elevation gain. 4 hours car to car.
Fun spot to go on a rainy, foggy day.
Hiked up with Maddie on a cool, foggy day in early May. Absolutely no views, but the rock was interesting and the trail was quiet. Nice relaxing spring day. No snow.
Led a hike for the Mountaineers CHS group with 7 happy hikers and 2 friendly dogs. Nice stiff climb made for a great conditioner! Perfect weather capped off with an amazing view from the top!
Great weather, and only encountered 3 other people.
Clear skies, warm weather. Last real weekend of summer, and this was a bit of a slog. Looking forward to a winter ascent.
Another "one'n'dun". Much better peaks in the area for less effort.
Cold, snowy day. No snowshoes. Took almost 5 hours to make the summit from the car due to a lot of trail-breaking thru hip deep snow. No views.
It was a beautiful sunny day but slushy snow was on the trail from about 3 miles on and off up to the top. We took it slow and easy, endured some post holing and scary parts and were rewarded with the amazing views at the top. We saw just 8 other people the whole 9 hours we were on the trail.Awesome day!
One retired, two unemployed, and me (midweek days off). Headed up in delightfully fresh, dry snow. Super-sunny and lovely. Drank beers at the top -- actually the knob just below the top, looking out at Rainier. Didn't need our axes or snowshoes. Nice.
Summer trail to summit of Mt Washington mid week. Total absence of people on this trip. No bugs though! Guess it got too cold for em.
Night hiking with hardly any snow except at the very top above 3,800'. Lights of NB below lit up the scene a bit. Nice way to spend a Thu night.
5 to 6 feet of snow at the summit. Snow was firm enough to stay on top of without any post-holing. Made for a quick descent as I heel stepped and boot skated on top of it.
Went up one winter.
good times in big snow. no glissade opportunities here but a good looking alpine ridge for such a close peak. 100 times more interesting than going to tiger mountain even on a bad day.
After more attempts than I care to admit I made it to the top! Unless you enjoy hiking fire roads that lead everywhere BUT the summit... Use Green Trails Map 206S Mt Si NRCA
