It is about a three mile hike from the trailhead to the top of Mt Pilchuk and an average hiker can make the distance under four hours roundtrip. For safety reasons it is recommended to register all your hikes, with the Verlot Ranger Station located within minutes of Mt Pilchuck. There have been a few incidents where hikers have lost their bearing and couldn’t find their way back down and had to be rescued by helicopters. Mt Pilchuk’s elevation is about 5300 feet and until 1970’s it was a ski resort. In a normal year you can see snow on the higher elevations during most part of the year.

Carry water or juice and some snacks, take your time and enjoy a few moments in the lookout shelter, a 1920 vintage structure on the summit. You will be amazed by the views up there!
