Ascent Trip ReportThis is one of the more beautiful and accessible P2K summits I've done in Washington. Located right off of Highway 2, it certainly takes you on a long walk with plenty of elevation gain and loss, but you walk through some spectacular country and get amazing views from the summit. Difficulty never gets above second class, and most of the hike is well-maintained trail.
