Mount Dickerman - 6.30 AM Sunday

  • Mount Dickerman is a 5,728 ft summit just North of the Mountain Loop Highway. This is a very popular, but strenuous, hike. The trail begins with a steady climb up a series of switchbacks through the forest. Eventually, the trail opens up at a meadow where views of the surrounding snow-capped peaks begin. However, you are not done yet, there is still some more climbing to do before you reach the summit. At the top you will find 360 degree majestic views of the North Cascades.

    Distance: 9 miles rt.

    Elevation gain: 3,900ft.

    Rating: strenuous.

    Pace: moderate.

    NO DOGS

    This trip is oriented towards experienced hikers that have the appropriate fitness, boots, clothing and equipment for this trip. You should be able to hike up Mt. Si in about two hours to enjoy this trip and be able to hang with the group.

    Email me if you have questions.

    Meet at 6.30 am at the East gate park and ride underneath the overpass to carpool to the trailhead. It is about 65 miles each way from the park and ride to the trail head. After reaching the Verlot Forest Service Ranger Station, travel 16.6 more miles East on the Mountain Loop Highway and turn left to the trail head. Bring some cash to cover a stop for food and beer after hike and the carpool fee. 12-15 cents per mile round trip is suggested for riders.

    Note: A Forest Service Pass is required for parking at the trail head.

Meeting location:

Eastgate Park & Ride - East side underneath over pass
