Go ahead, hike this way. Okay, Clint Eastwood I’m not. But this hike is more entertaining than any Dirty Harry movie you’ll see. It follows an old logging road up to a high bench overlooking the central section of the South Fork Snoqualmie River valley. The walking is fairly easy on this wide road-turned-trail, and the views are breathtaking. This previously unnamed peak was given its Hollywood-sounding name by wilderness advocate (and guidebook legend) Harvey Manning. The name is a backhanded memorial to Harry Gault, the logger who carved so many roads and clear-cuts into the mountains (including this one) of the Snoqualmie Valley. Dirty Harry indeed!
