Mount Dickerman Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Starting low and heading high, the way to Dickerman’s 5723-foot summit gains much elevation. But jaw-slacking views of craggy peaks near and far make every ounce of sweat expended worth
it. Come here in September and let Dickerman’s legendary blueberry patches slow your upward
momentum even more."
--Craig Romano, 100 Classic Hikes Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
"This hike has several attractions that draw hikers of all persuasions: one of the largest huckleberry patches in the region, spectacular views of the Monte Cristo Peaks, and, last but not least, a variety of wildflowers, as this trail passes through several life zones. The trail was built by the Forest Service in the 1920s to serve as a recreational trail for visitors staying at Big Four Inn, which burned down in 1949. Though the focus of this book is flowers, keep this hike in mind for fall, when the trail is vivid with the bright hues of vine maple, mountain ash, and huckleberry shrubs."
--Art Kruckeberg with Karen Sykes & Craig Romano, Best Wildflower Hikes Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
"One of the most popular hikes off of the Mountain Loop Highway, the Mount Dickerman Trail delivers jaw-slacking views of a ring of rugged peaks near and far. Big Four and Del Campo practically leap out at you, while Glacier mesmerizes off in the distance. Though well-built and well-maintained, the trail is not easy. It starts low and heads high, wasting little time on the way to the 5723-foot summit. Come in September and Dickerman’s legendary blueberry patches will slow your momentum even more than the steep trail. You’ll likely end up looking like an “indigo girl” with all your picking and sampling."
--Craig Romano, Day Hiking: North Cascades (The Mountaineers Books).
