Mount Si should be experienced at least once by every hiker. In fact, a significant number of Puget Sound residents do just one hike per year, and these annual hikers almost invariably turn to Mount Si every time. In the early spring, mountain-loving backpackers and climbers use the trail as a tune-up for the coming season. Others come because the trail is one of few that becomes snow-free early in the year. Land managers estimate that Si draws between thirty thousand and fifty thousand visitors a year, making it the most heavily used trail in the state. As a result, on any sunny summer weekend the trail will be crowded—almost to the point of having to take a number and get in line. Really, it’s not that bad, and the steep trail soon separates the serious hiker from the casual mall walker. And Si’s payoff is incredible: views of the Upper Snoqualmie Valley, the Puget Sound basin, and far beyond.
