Bearhead Mountain

Seattle Branch hike to summit of Bearhead with 6 hikers.

  • Road recommended for high clearance only
  • Hiking route in good condition.  No issues.  FS road to trailhead was very rough.

Pleasant yet uneventful hike through the forest up to the summit of Bearhead. Weather was on-and-off cloudy with views of Rainier on the way up the trail but none from the summit. We had the whole mountain to ourselves during our ascent and time on the summit, and saw only a handful of other people during our descent. Other parties we saw in the parking lot reported that Summit Lake (reached from the same trailhead) had been crowded overnight.
