Fantastic springtime wildflower displays and distant views are the order of the day on Bandera Mountain, but hikers have to work hard for it. The steep trail gains nearly 3,000 feet in 3.0 miles and hopscotches over talus, never actually reaching the true summit. But views to the south of Mount Rainier and Mount Adams, west to the Olympics, and north to Mount Baker (even Vancouver Island on especially clear mornings) are stunning nonetheless and negate the noise of cars whooshing by on Interstate 90 far below.
