Stillaguamish Peak

A scramble of 14.0 miles with 3,900 feet of gain off of the Mountain Loop Highway.

Getting There

From Granite Falls drive the Mountain Loop Highway 27.5 miles to the Mount Dickerman Trailhead (1,800 ft).

Approach & Ascent

Hike the Perry Creek Trail crossing the creek on a log in ~2 hours. Gain ridge ~3 hours with a view of Mount Forgotten to the right. Turn left and follow the trail along top of ridge for a few hundred yards until reaching a narrow trail that descends left and below ridge 300-400 yards. Follow this trail towards the summit. Stay high on the ridge at summit block gully, follow the trail around summit block and up its far side (the trail around summit block can be seen from near the top of the notch of the small gully at the summit block). A short exposed 10-foot catwalk is at the start of the trail that traverses the summit block.

Alternate Route

Hike the Perry Creek Trail and leave the trail at the switchback at 4,300 ft. Head north (toward Point 5420) to about 5,200 ft and a boot path/old trail. Follow the boot path which generally contours the ridge around to Stillaguamish Peak. After getting to the summit area, stay just south of a little bump on the south ridge and almost go over the bump to get to a 10-foot catwalk. Traverse across the south face on ledges and ascend where it is the easiest. Approach the summit from the left side. Return by following the ridge (boot path) to the intersection of the maintained trail at 4,900 ft.

Notes

  • There is loose rock on the face of Stillaguamish Peak.
  • Note the ridge on the approach has some cliff areas so don't stay on top of the ridge, contour around the bumps on the south side.
