This is a very nice hike through lush undergrowth near the bottom through very tall trees most of the way to scrubbier short trees and finally a rock scramble at the top. The trail is well kept. The vegetation changes dramatically as you climb the close to 3,600 ft elevation change from the parking lot to the peak. It is... More

There isn't actually any access that I could find to the mountain directly but many roads take you right up to it and you can stop along the way to take several great pictures. This mountain was featured in many episodes of the TV series Twin Peaks so if you are a fan, it is a must see. The location... More

Websites describe this as the 'most hiked' in the area nearest Seattle and for good reason. Its directly east and not a far drive, but a world away. Fairly steep and not for the faint of heart or heel. Its 4 miles to the top and about 3100 foot climb according to the WTA. You have spectacular views just below... More

Pretty beautiful place for adult hiking, but a little bit tough for kids. It's pretty cool inside even in hot summer season.

Mt. Si is a terrific day or half day hike in a beautiful area. It's around a 20-30 minute drive east of Seattle. There is usually parking available right at the foot of the mountain near your trail head. The trail is fairly steep in areas and it takes a reasonable exertion of effort to get to the top- depending... More

This is a tuff hike. It's long and steep. Well maintained and pretty. Not crowded - on a Tuesday afternoon, at least. Lots of parking, but will need to download and print a parking pass to hang on your dash. Great trail.

Great exercise, but the hike up wasn't very eventful, just switchback after switchback. Not for young children, once you get to the top it has a great view, but only if the weather is clear. I wouldn't do this again for the views, but only for the exercise.

Mt Si has two trails and both are quite popular. Mt Si is called out as the most popular (by traffic) trail in Washington. It's easy to understand the popularity given the great condition of the wide trail , spectacular views and the reputation it has for getting people into shape for tougher climbs. It isn't a climb with any... More

This hike is uphill until you get to the turnaround point but it's a perfect downhill trail run the way back. I was sore for days but it was completely worth it because... I stood on a cliff that looked like Pride Rock and fed birds out of my hand like Belle. Not to mention the beautiful view you have... More

Views of the Snoqualmie Valley, Seattle, The Olympic Mountains, Mt Rainier, and more. Bring a camera and expect other hikers as this is one of the most popular hikes in the Western US
