We went on a Friday and got there at 10:00 am. While the parking lot was less than half full, the few spots on the shoulder of the road just outside of the parking lot were taken. This may be due to hikers, upon arrival at the park entrance reading that a pass must be displayed on the dashboard. The... More

This is a great hike with amazing views that I have completed twice already. If you do get to the top you will not be disappointed!! It is however, more on the though side, so be aware of that if you are a beginner. It is pretty steep and you will be climbing over 3000 ft to the top. It... More

This is an amazing hike! Unfortunately is was very overcast when I went. So no views from the top. But in saying that it made the hike cool in that the colours of the trees and moss etc outstanding. Took 2 hours up and for me a bit longer down. Well formed track all the way. Look forward to doing... More

This was my first time up Si, and my first hike of the season.... It was a tough hike but well worth the views at the top! My knees were hating me on the way down, knee brace next time.

We had heard about Mt. Si as a popular training area for ultramarathon trail runners. We decided to run up the trail and back down. We are relatively fit (easy training pace of 6:20 min/mi), and we were lucky to get under 15 minute miles for the duration of the total 4 miles uphill. Of course, we took our time... More

Completed Mt Si a couple of times. The climb is steep with many switch back trail. There are good view points in the winter with all the leaves gone. There is still some snow on the top near the haystack. Not recommended for little kids unless you prepare to carry them most of the way. This is a popular climb... More

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.
