Need to Know

Easily accessed from the Snowgrass Flats trail to become an out and back.

Description

Just off of the PCT, you can do a steep and short accent to this peak. There is a little bit of scrambling near the top, but with it come 360 degree views of the Cascades. Follow the cairns when the trail gets less sure and you then can finish with a quick scramble to the peak.

Flora & Fauna

A few wildflowers between the rocks.
