Mount Defiance is prominently displayed to motorists heading west on Interstate 90. They never suspect the peak harbors vast fields of wildflowers or views that stretch south to north from Oregon to Canada and west to east from the Olympic Mountains to eastern Washington. Strong hikers frequently make the round-trip journey to Mount Defiance in one day, but it’s much more pleasant as an overnight excursion, with a stay at Mason Lake. There are many options to continue on as a multiday backpack trip.
