Trip Report: Buck Mountain

Entiat Mountains, Central Cascades, WA, USA

Republished from the WTA website here. Climbed Buck Mountain via High Pass route, a long winding 16-ish mile approach with some incredible views. Main takeaways: Hiking boots probably fine Never needed ice axe or traction Many water sources along trail Parts of the trail were indistinguishable from the enchantments, with light-colored granite slabs towering over pristine alpine lakes. Great views of Glacier Peak, Clark Mountain (with the Walrus Glacier!), Luahna Peak, Bonanza Peak, Dome Peak, Copper/Fernow/7-Fingered Jack/Maude, Buck Mountain itself, and many other peaks which would be notable in less star-studded topography.
