Guye Peak/North Route

Guye Peak is a scramble of 5 miles with 2,200 feet of gain in the Snoqualmie Pass area.

Driving Directions

Take Exit 52 off of I-90, drive to the Alpental Ski area and park at the Snow Lake trailhead (3,120 ft).

approach & ascent

Find the boot path about 50 feet to the right of the Snow Lake trailhead. The boot path goes to the base of Snoqualmie Mountain and Guye Peak. Follow boot path to boulder field (~4,250 ft) taking the right branch (signed) to the ridge. Then turn right,  pass a tarn and continue on to the summit.


  • Best done when the snow is gone from the lower elevations.
  • Most parties only summit the North Peak.
  • A boot path can be found to the summit in late season making this more of a hike than a scramble.
