Treen Peak

A strenuous scramble about 1.25 miles northeast of Mount Garfield with panoramic views of the Taylor River and several lakes in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.

getting there

From North Bend, drive the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Road. Find a very faint miners/fishermans path on the north side of the road approximately 1.1 miles before the Dingford Creek Trailhead at an elevation of 1,350 ft.

approach & ascent

On the USGS Snoqualmie Lake map look for elevation  Point 1571. The path follows steeply northeast toward Green Ridge Lake. At about 4,100 ft where the track forks, continue north up the ridge (the other fork leads east to the lake). After gaining the ridge at 4,700 ft travel cross country northwest through open forest, heather meadows, and past a couple of tarns. After reaching Tarn 4662, proceed west to a boulder field and to Upper Garfield Mountain Lake. Camp at lake. Hike through timber  north to Charlie Brown Lake. Above the lake at 4,800 ft reach a boulder field. Look for a gully northwest and enter at about 5,200 ft. It is very steep. Find forest at the top (~5,400 ft). Scramble north to the summit.
