Got Wednesday off? If so, let's hike up to the top of Silver Peak near Snoqualmie Pass.
From Windy Pass we hike south on the PCT, take the old Mt Gardner trail to the ridge top, and then follow the path along the ridge all the way to the summit. Great views. See pretty Annette Lake 2,000' below. If conditions allow, and the group is so inclined, we may continue south on the PCT to lovely Mirror Lake.
Bring plenty of water, good boots, and your 10 Essentials. I've done this hike many times. This is one of the easiest summits to get to in the region. A big bang for your buck! No dogs or babies. There will be no snow.
Stats: 7 miles RT with 1,800' elevation gain. The extension to Mirror Lake would add 3 miles RT with 400' elevation gain. Moderate social pace.
Meet 8am at the Preston Park & Ride on I-90, Exit 22. We will carpool to the trailhead.
