Mount Pugh is a very strenuous hike since you climb approximately 1 mile in about 5 miles distance. That is on average 20% steepness or you gain about 1,000 ft. of elevation gain per mile. So why we are doing that? Because it is a lot of fun and because we love mountains! :-)

"The view from Pugh seems too good to be true! The Olympics, Three Fingers, Baker, Shuksan, Rainier, Stuart, the Monte Cristo massif, and nearly every peak ringing the Mountain Loop Highway are in full view from this cloud-piercing peak..." If you want to know more you can read here:

Weather forecast is mostly cloudy but I hope we can still have some good views. You can check it here:
