“TOP 'O THE WORLD - HANDS DOWN BEST VIEW!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I have traveled the world many times over, been to the Swiss Alps a few times as well. Nothing compares to Washington state's own backyard. The central placement of Mt Walker to The Puget Sound a and view downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier and other noted snow capped mountains, along with the Olympics and Cascades is the best of the best. If vacationing here (or not), IT IS NOT TO MISS if clear weather.

“Hike or drive up, either journey will take you to the top.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great trip which offers wonderful views of the Olympic Mountains, Puget Sound, and on a clear day Seattle in the distance. Lots of good chances to see passing raptors fly by as well. The road and hiking trail to the top is just off of Highway 101. Be sure and check out "both" lookout areas at top for different views of surrounding environment. For pics/videos of mountain:

Afraid of heights, but made it to the top and back down, worth the trip.

“Unsurpassed views on a clear day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

If you're in good shape hike up to the View Point or drive the 4-5 mile narrow dirt road all the way to the top - on a clear day you can even see Mt. St. Helens!
