Cedar Butte (Olallie State Park)


Day Hike - Cedar Butte (Olallie State Park)

A brisk Monday morning 4-mile hike up to Cedar Butte, with about 950 feet of elevation gain. We will go up the main steeper trail, and return via the slightly longer and less steep alternative trail. The summit is forested, but on a clear day there are views out toward the north looking up the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, with Mount Si, Mount Teneriffe, Green Mountain, Russian Butte and Mailbox Peak all visible.
