Bryant Peak Information:


Please note that the last 1/2 mile from Hemlock Pass up to Bryant Peak is NOT on trail (crosscountry travel – a bit of bushwhacking).  About 100 yards past Hemlock Pass, veer to the right up minor talus field in small draw.

Distance & Elevation: 7.6 miles round trip and 3600′ gain

Seattle PI Driving Directions:

NW Forest Pass required to park

From Seattle, take I-90 east to Exit 47 (before Snoqualmie Pass). Turn left at the stop sign, and cross to the north (left) side of the freeway. At the “T,” stay right on Road No. 58, and pass Denny Creek Campground at about three miles. A short distance past the campground, turn left onto a .2-mile road (No. 5830)

    It’s about 4.3 to the pass, and I believe a half or 3/4 to the summit. So, people should plan on a roughly 10 mile round trip.

    I’m not sure of the mileage. My computer mapping shows it 3.8 to the Pass and 0.5 to Bryant peak. So perhaps 4.3 one way or 8.6 round trip. Elevation gain on that mapping was 3800′ vertical. I haven’t done this trip with a GPS.

    I hope to hike this one tomorrow but am battling flu/cold. Not sure if a long slog up a scorching valley will be the right medicine!!

    Get better Yukon, sure hope you can make it! Or maybe just come by the Pour House afterwards to throw back a little remedy? 🙂

    Nice lighting on the peak. Why not just host the photos and put in the img links to flickr? Like this :

    Some that share photos with us prefer not to have their full sized images up on Flickr so I upload directly to the blog, which tends to be viewed by participants. The photos you see in the ‘shutter delayed’ section are hosted on Flickr after we are granted permission for their use. It then feeds directly to Word Press using a plug-in.
