Alpine Scramble - Satulick Mountain

Satulick is an easy scramble. It is a wonderful destination in clear weather, but the 12 miles round-trip makes for a long day. The peak appears rocky and prominent from the trail to Indian Henrys Hunting Ground, but the scramble route reaches the summit via easy terrain. Satulick Mountain is named for So-to-lick, also known as Indian Henry, a member of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe who hunted in the area during the 1870s. Route The Rampart Ridge trailhead (part of the Wonderland Trail) is located across the road from the parking area. Follow this trail, heading north over Rampart Ridge and across Kautz Creek and then Pyramid Creek. Keep heading northward until the trail takes a left turn and crosses Fishers Hornpipe Creek. Continue westward on the trail to Devils Dream Camp. From the campground at either spot 3 or 7, leave the trail at a bearing of 214 degrees southwest toward the Satulick Mountain summit and travel up the best terrain. Equipment: Scramble gear, ice ax in spring and winter.
