Guye Peak - Snoqualmie Pass

Put a lemonade stand up near the summit and you might make some money. Guye Peak is very popular, maybe one of the most popular peaks without a trail to the top. Guye towers 2,000 feet above I-90 and Alpental. With this quick access and a host of routes up, Guye is a favorite for climbers of all abilities and seasons.
Distance: 2 miles
Summit Elevation: 5,168 feet

Around 20 feet to the right of the Snow Lake trailhead is a blocked dirt road. Walk this road looking for a boot path on the right. After a few hundred yards the climbers trail climbs a steep creek bed. It's not the greatest trail but you should be able to stay on route. In a mile or so is a junction. Right is to Guye Peak & Cave Ridge. Follow this to the ridge, then take the ridge to the summit.
