Bear Creek Mountain

Bear Creek Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Hike through a recent burn and ancient forest along a lonely ridge to a lofty former lookout site on the eastern edge of the Goat Rocks crest.

Marvel at snowy bookend volcanoes Mounts Adams and Rainier. And admire up close the serrated and glacier-clutching remnants of a massive ancient volcano that once rivaled Washington’s highest peaks. Via the Section 3 Lake trailhead, this hike is only 7 miles roundtrip and 1200 feet of elevation gain. But the roads getting there are extremely rough, warranting high clearance and four-wheel drive."

Very nice short hike through flowered meadows to the last 1/2 mile or so, where the trail turns a bit steep to the top of Bear Creek Mountain. Great views at the top of Rainier and Adams and the basin below.

If you're in the mood for a great view of Mt. Adams and Rainier but don't want to hassle with the crowds this trail might be of interest to you. Also, save up your energy for the last half mile or so.
