Slate Peak Trail

Slate Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a long drive for a short hike, but it is worth it. Plan on at least 2 days if you can; 3 days is better. You can camp at Riverbend or Meadows Campgrounds or stay at a motel in Mazama or Winthrop. Slate Peak is more of a side trip than an actual hike, but you can hike other trails in the area for more mileage, including the Pacific Crest Trail in either direction. In a heavy snow year Slate Peak Road may be gated and you may need to walk a portion of the road.

Look for flowers and snail fossils in outcroppings along the road. The views from the summit of Slate Peak are excellent. The peaks of the North Cascades rise in every direction—Crater Mountain, Mount Baker, Jack Mountain, Azurite Peak, and Silver Star. Nestled below the peaks are deep-forested valleys of the West Fork of the Pasayten River and Slate Creek."
