Hike to Hawkeye Point

Rate this Adventure Washington Hawkeye Point Trailhead

Added by Doug McClay

Beautiful 360 view from the top point of several PNW mountains. There are several great campsites and good high alpine camping areas. Goat Lake is nestled in between ridges.

Starting at the parking lot, the trail is fairly easy. In getting closer to the ridge there are a few steep spots. I am pretty sure there are snow patches all year around, and the last part of the trail was covered going out to the point.

I hiked in and out in one day, which made for a long day. I would suggest camping along the way or near the point. There are several mountain streams and a lake so fresh water is available.

Hike to Elk Pass via "the Knife"

Washington / Snowgrass Flat Trailhead

This is a rather long out and back, however, it can also be done as a backpack, which would give you more time to explore the Goat Rocks Wilderness, which is highlighted in other Adventures.
