From Enumclaw, take 410 for 24 miles to a right turn on FR 73 (Huckleberry Creek Road). Drive 1.5 miles to the Sun Top Sno-Park. If summer, turn left on FR #7315 and follow it 5 miles to the saddle south of the summit. Here is another gate that is often closed. If open, drive up. If closed, walk the road or take a short half mile trail up the south side to the summit.
