Overview

This nice run rewards tough scrambling and steep, long uphills with a generous view from the top of Bearhead Mountain. From the summit, be sure to snap photos of Rainier in all its majestic glory, especially when under a light cloud cover.

Need to Know

The road to the trailhead can be a little rough, so take it easy and bring your high-clearance vehicle if you have one.

Runner Notes

While the uphill is tough, it's fun to run downhill. Since it can be quite crowded, be sure to get here early!

Description

This moderate run sports consistent grades the whole way. While there are beautiful views at the top on clear days, you can still get an interesting glimpse of Rainier when it's slightly overcast.

Overall, the trails this run uses are rocky and have lots of roots. Once you reach the top, you can stay on the ridge of the mountain and run south for a small extension.

For an easier run, consider Summit Lake. It shares the first mile of the run with this one but is less steep.
