    Directions to Trailhead

    Sunrise Peak Trail is a spectacular hike with panoramic views that start before you’ve even reached the top. We do recommend trying to do this hike for sunrise if you’re willing to wake up early, as the view is spectacular when awash in color. This 5.6 km hike is rated as moderate.

    This trail is shared by dirtbikers, most of whom are courteous and careful. You’ll want to be cautious on the narrow route, which can be quite dusty.

    Route Description for Sunrise Peak Trail

    Sunrise Peak is well worth every step, offering 360-degree views of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The views start before you’ve summitted, making this an enjoyable hike through and through. We especially enjoy it in wildflower season.

    This trail is used by dirtbikers, most of whom are careful and courteous. That being said, parts of the trail are quite narrow and dusty, so be cautious as you go. Additionally, the road to the trailhead is in rough condition in spots. Drive slowly.

    Beginning from the trailhead, take Sunrise Trail #262 as it leads you uphill. At the first junction, stay right. You’ll hike just underneath the ridge, wrapping around the summit to a few short switchbacks that lead you to the top. After admiring the views, retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
