Mailbox Peak

 (Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest)

A tough hike basically straight up the side of a mountain from its base to peak. Elevation gain is 1250 m. The trail is initially forested until about the top 1500 m which are above the tree line. The mountain is also a perfect pyramid and is the first major peak on the edge of the range. All this adds up to amazing, distant, 360-degree views.

Comments

The top mile or so of trail was snow-covered and made for good sliding on the way down. Peak had cornices. New shoes gave me blisters.
