Probably the most hiked summit trail on the Mountain Loop Highway is Mount Dickerman. The trail begins right off the road climbing through timber to a high summit above the valley. With only a few trails in the area that go all the way to a summit, it is the best way for hikers to get a visual of the surrounding peaks.
Distance: 4.3 miles
Summit Elevation: 5,723 feet
Elevation Gain: 3,875 feet
Access: Good Gravel
Just follow the trail to the summit. The last mile has views as the trail passes through blueberry and huckleberry fields. Due to the popularity of the trail, you can expect a packed trail during early or late season.
From Granite Falls, follow the Mountain Loop Highway east for 27 miles to the signed trailhead. It is 1.8 miles east of the Big Four Picnic area.
