THE PEAKS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SIX-PACK OF PEAKS CHALLENGE

2020 Mailbox Peak Badge

MAILBOX PEAK - Elevation 4,841' (1476 m)

Take the old trail and you'll climb over 4,000 vertical feet in less than three miles. Fortunately, there is a longer-but-kinder new trail with switchbacks. With that vertical gain, either option is a physical challenge.

Six-Pack Route Details: Mailbox Peak Loop
Distance: 8.3 miles; Vertical +/- 4,237 ft.

2020 Mount Pilchuck badge

MOUNT PILCHUCK - Elevation 5,341' (1629m)

Mount Pilchuck is a very popular hiking destination in the North Cascades despite the difficult, rocky climb to the top. The historic lookout tower is part of the appeal, but the real attraction are the million-dollar views.

Six-Pack Route Details: Hiking Mount Pilchuck
Distance: 5.5 miles; Vertical +/- 2,300 ft.

2020 Mount Ellinor badge

MOUNT ELLINOR - Elevation 5,952' (1814 m)

Mount Ellinor stands nearly 6,000′ above sea level, a prominent sentinel at the south-eastern corner of the Olympic Peninsula. The trail up Mt. Ellinor has a reputation for being steep, but rewarding with terrific views.

Six-Pack Route Details: Hiking Mount Ellinor
Distance: 6.6 miles; Vertical +/- 3,286 ft.

2020 Granite Mountain badge

GRANITE MOUNTAIN - Elevation 5,629' (1716 m)

A steep climb up the south-facing slope of Granite Mountain might reward you with wild huckleberries. The views from the top are legendary – one of the reasons there is still an active fire lookout tower at the summit.

Six-Pack Route Details: Hiking Granite Mountain
Distance: 8.6 miles; Vertical +/- 3,800 ft.

 

2020 Camp Muir Badge

CAMP MUIR - Elevation 10,188' (3105 m)

Nestled between the Nisqually and Paradise Glaciers on Mount Rainier, Camp Muir is the highest point on the mountain that you can reach without a climbing permit. And you'll get some snow travel up the Muir snowfield above Paradise.

Six-Pack Route Details: Coming soon
Distance: 8.4 miles; Vertical +/- 4,696 ft.

2020 Mount Saint Helens badge

MOUNT SAINT HELENS - Elevation 8,363' (2549 m)

Climbing to the top of this active stratovolcano is challenging, but won't require any technical skills, but it does require a permit, so apply early. For 2020, you can apply for a permit on March 1st.

Six-Pack Route Details: Coming soon
Distance: 10 miles; Vertical +/- 4,500 ft.
