Rising 1 mile above the surrounding countryside and perched on the western edge of the Cascades, Pilchuck packs some of the best panoramic viewing to be found in these parts. From its historical and restored fire lookout, scan the horizon— from Rainier to Baker, Glacier Peak to the Olympics, Seattle to the San Juans—and every jagged, rugged, and snow-capped peak lining the Mountain Loop Highway. One of the most popular hikes in Washington, Pilchuck is a “social mountain.” Expect company and enjoy the camaraderie.
