“An infamous (easier) run with a mailbox (maintained by volunteers) at the top!”— Jackie Clark
Discover Pass required.
From the top are great views of the nearby Granite and Bandera Mountains. As with most peak runs in this area, the view of Rainier is captivating.
Be sure to take a look in the Mailbox as visitors leave all sorts of messages and surprises!
