Announcing a new Meetup for Eastside Hikers Meetup Group!
What: Silver Peak
When: Thursday, July 8,[masked]:00 AM
Preston Park & Ride
I-90 Exit 22
Preston, WA 98050
Got Thursday off? If so, let's hike up to the top of Silver Peak. This is directly east of Annette Lake, but we will take the PCT from Windy Pass and then a good foot path all the way to the rocky summit. Expect some snow along the way. Bring good boots and a trekking pole or two. I've done this hike many times. Great views.
Stats: 2,000' elevation gain and 6 miles round trip.
If the weather is nice and there isn't much snow we may elect to take the PCT to Mirror Lake and maybe even drop down to Twin Lakes to make a loop. I've done this many times too. This would add an extra 1,000' (max) and 4 miles. We will discuss this on the summit.
Meet 9am at the Preston Park & Ride on I-90 at Exit 22. We will carpool to the trailhead above Hyak.
