Day Hike - Mount Si Old Trail

The “old” trail of Mount Si’s western flank offers a shorter, steeper, slightly more scenic, less crowded—route to the summit, where to rejoin the crowds that flock to one of Snoqualmie Pass’s most popular hiking destinations. Join us our hike to feel nature of this season of Spring.

Spring is upon us! Join us for a summer conditioning hike and explore the beautiful North Cascade mountains. Prepare your strength for a season of joyful hikes. Beautiful spring views with birds singing... We will take the old trail of Mt. Si as it is more challenging than the main trail. It is steeper and gives more exercise to get in tip-top shape. On the way of the trail, there will be some snow depending on the weather condition. It could be fun to say goodbye to last year’s snow. We will have lunch on the peak enjoying views to Seattle and Mt. Rainier. Absolutely spectacular if there is a clear sky. Let's hope it will be one of the lucky days!
