Capitol Peak Professional Review and Guide
"On a clear day you can see from the ocean to the mountains, including Mount Olympus, Mount Baker, Mount Rainier, and Mount Adams. The sweeping views are a highlight of this run. This trail starts at Wedekind Picnic Area and follows the ridge to Capitol Peak, offering outstanding views at several points along the way.
Go up Porter Creek Road across from the picnic area and turn right onto Trail 30 in a few hundred feet. Follow this for 0.3 mile until you come to a set of signs. One of them is the Greenline 6 Trail. Turn right onto Greenline 6 (A) and follow this trail almost to the peak. (We turned left and had a very nice 4-mile diversion.) The trail is well maintained, well marked, and runnable. It follows the gently rolling ridge
through grass, salal, and huckleberry brush. Basalt rocks poke through the soil."
