    Directions to Trailhead

    Snoqualmie Mountain is a moderately trafficked out-and-back trail in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest that is rated as hard. This hike is straight uphill the entire way, packing solid elevation gain into a shorter distance. The trail follows a washout gully, so it’s rocky when dry and sometimes impassable when wet. It’s perfect for a challenge or for hikers seeking a good challenge in a shorter distance.

    While dogs are allowed on leash on this hike, some users report that the trail becomes too steep for their dogs to complete.

    Route Description for Snoqualmie Mountain Trail

    Snoqualmie Mountain is a leg burner, but it’s perfect for those seeking a short hike that still has you work hard. The trail can be easy to lose in parts and it’s quite rocky and steep, so GPS, poles, and good boots are essential. We don’t recommend trying this one when it’s raining, and although dogs are allowed, some users suggest leaving them at home for this one.

    The trail begins from the trailhead parking area. Snow Lake Trail and Snoqualmie Mountain Trail are next to one another, so make sure you take the one on the left. It’s steep from the get-go, following a snowmelt path straight up the mountain.

    Keep an eye on your GPS, pushing up towards the summit on a mostly straight trail. On the way down, take care over rocky or slippery sections, retracing your steps back to the parking area.
