Kendall Peak


Alpine Scramble - Kendall Peak

Easy, slow pace conditioning hike on the Pacific Crest Trail north from Snoqualmie Pass to a short Rock scramble with views of stunning Central Cascades peaks that you will climb in the future. We may also experience the Kendall Katwalk if participants are up for it.

Meet in the Snoqualmie Pass north PCT trailhead parking area at 8:00 AM. 

From  I-90E, take exit 52 and turn Left (N). In 0.1 miles, turn Right and follow the road, keeping right, 0.2 miles to the  trailhead parking. There is a pit toilet, and US Forest Pass is required on all vehicles.

This is a good trip for Scrambling students who feel they need a bit more experience and conditioning. We'll start rambling up an old PCT section, catch up with the current  route and follow it for several miles, then leave it to scramble to the 5484' Kendall Peak summit. Portions of this route were pioneered by The Mountaineers between 1915 and 1925, as our charter members sought first ascents of the peaks north of the old Snoqualmie Pass Lodge.

I'll be attending a Navigation conference on Friday and Saturday, so I'll email final instructions and a map on the Thursday before the trip.
