Description

This is the upper segment connecting to the Lower Cowiche Mountain West trail, and to the summit of Cowiche Mountain. After taking the doubletrack trail of the Lower portion, runners will transition to a singletrack-type trail as they continue on to the summit. You'll need to be a bit more careful with your footing, but the surrounding wilderness makes up for it.

The trail travels through a typical Shrub-Steppe landscape offering better views of the surrounding valley and Cascade Mountains as the altitude changes. Be sure to take a moment to appreciate the beautiful vistas provided by the peak before moving on to your descent.

From the top, you can turn back the way you came, or take the Cowiche Mountain East Trail down to extend the day, and take in another of Snow Mountain Ranch's great trails.
