Mount Zion Trail

OutAndBack • 4.6 mi • 1300 ft

Hike a short and to-the-point trail to an isolated peak on the fringe of the Olympics. Enjoy views out over glistening Puget Sound, with its ferries and Seattle skyline. But there’s more. From Zion’s summit follow a ridgeline trail to a series of ledges, a promised land of sweeping views of lofty Mount Townsend and the towering and jagged Gray Wolf Ridge. Make a pilgrimage in June and be rewarded with a kingdom of brilliantly blooming rhododendrons.

Awesome trail!!! We will go back when the rhodies are in bloom. The views are fantastic. Our visit was in March and only saw four otehr hikers, but the trail looks like it gets a lot of visitors. The trail is steep in places but not terrible. A few spots to pull off the trial and have lunch/break. Took hubby and I with two dogs 1 hour 15 minutes to make to the top.
