Tiffany Mountain Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Perhaps nowhere else in the Cascades can a hiker saunter to an 8000-foot peak with such little effort. With a trailhead at 6500 feet, Tiffany Mountain requires very little sweat to make it to its 8242-foot summit. All the better, for you’ll want to spend as much time as possible stopping and smelling the flowers along the way. The entire trail is lined with them, from forest to meadow to the grassy and rocky summit. The trail begins on Freezeout Ridge in an open and mature forest of lodgepole and whitebark pine.

Plenty of sunlight reaches the forest floor; come in late July, when the entire trail is lined with lupine, providing a purple pathway to the peak. Arnica and daisies add their golden touch. In time, clusters of valerian help whiten the forest floor. As the forest thins along the lupine carpet, asters, louseworts, groundsel, and fireweed help diversify the colors."
