What a fun little hike this was with a great view at the top. I will do this one again.
You tube really degrades my videos but here is a 360 view from the summit.
The view up here is awesome! You can look down to the Skokomish river and the High Steel Bridge and you can see Lake West from up here. There is a 360 unobstructed view of the surrounding peaks and I think you could see Seattle from here on a clear day. It was a bright sunny day and the snow was very crisp. I did not need my snow shoes.
Easy 4 mile round trip walk up a logging road with good views the entire way. I saw two deer up here and many tracks of deer, rabbit and fox. I will be back! I just home and I have a hikers high.
In the summer I could push a jogging stroller or ride a bike up to the cache.
This was 4 miles round trip with 870 feet elevation gain.
