Mount Washington (Snoqualmie)


Day Hike - Mount Washington (Snoqualmie)

This is a day hike to Mt. Washington.

  • Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,200 ft

Meet at the Olaille State Park trailhead off of exit 38 (I-90) at 9:30.  A Discover Pass will be needed.  We can carpool from the Tibbetts Park & Ride in Issaquah to the trailhead meeting at 8:45.  The weather for the day is predicted to be cloudy.  The trail up to Mount Washington is very rocky in some places, but mostly pleasant. 

This trail is a little lower in elevation gain than Mt. Si.  It will be about a 5 hour trip at a moderate pace.  If you are used to lower elevation gains you will want to think twice about this trip.  We will of course have time for lunch snack at the top and look at views if any for the day.
