Mount Pilchuck State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Though the only man-made structure here is the summit lookout, Mount Pilchuck could
not be any better designed even if it had been specifically planned and constructed by
hand. When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, no other peak offers such great rewards for so little effort. This landmark hike should not be missed."

pretty straight forward trail until the ridge line where you can choose a boulder scramble or hunting for the trail in scattered snow pack. but well worth the extra effort for the beautiful 360 view the tower lends

Road open to Trailhead. Multiple snow fields on way to summit, suggest minimum of pointed hiking poles to ease the snow passage.

Forest Road closes 1.5 miles before trail head. Good hike, nice trails, a bit wet, but its winter.
