    Table of contents

    Mount David is a 20.9 km hard hike in Henry M. Jackson Wilderness. This hike sees very little traffic, so you’ll likely have the place to yourself. Be prepared for a trail that may not always be very well-defined. We recommend downloading your GPS route ahead of time.

    Route Description for Mount David Hike

    Mount David is a tough hike with very rewarding views. The trail is about as quiet as it gets, but that can result in uncleared blowdown and overgrowth, so bring a GPS track for reference if you can. The bugs can be a nuisance on this hike, so a potent spray is highly recommended.

    Begin from the trailhead. You’ll cross the creek and then take a sharp left to follow it south. The trail begins to climb uphill and doesn’t stop until the summit. It’s quite steep and some sections lack swtichbacks, so take it slow if needed. Once you get atop the ridge, head to your right and traverse to the summit. Soak up the views before retracing your steps to the trailhead.

    Getting to the Mount David Hike Trailhead

    The trailhead for Mount David is at the end of White River Road. There is parking here.
