Hiking Avalanche Mountain

This small subpeak of Snoqualmie Mountain provides surprisingly expansive views of the surrounding Cascade Mountains considering its prominence is relatively low.

Situated northeast of Snow Lake, the shortest approach is via the High Lakes Trail from the Alpental/NWFS Parking Lot.

Once atop the ridge, expect views of Mount Thomas and the jagged ridgeline from Chimney Rock all the way to Chikamin Peak.
