This ancient volcanic cone long since overgrown with vegetation the peak’s dense forest offers occasional breaks to farmland views below. Looking north its possible to spot the Seattle city skyline appearing to be building blocks emerging from a distant forest. Mount Rainier looms in the south across the white river valley. Once you see basalt columns emerging from the switchback trail you are approaching the summit.
