Take exit 54 (Hyak exit) off I-90. At the intersection, go straight onto Hyak Drive East. Pass through the Hyak Ski Area, then a wasterwater facility, then the road becomes FR 9070. Follow it past the reservoir and up into Cold Creek. Hit the Pacific Crest Trail at Windy Pass, about 5.5 miles from I-90, at 3,800 elevation. You already have a view and are nice and high!

Silver Peak

Silver Peak is the crown of the peaks south of Snoqualmie Pass. The Pacific Crest Trail traverses its slopes and a hidden trail works all the way to the summit. Silver Peak is the 119th most prominent peak in the state, with nothing higher around south of I-90, this makes for some nice views. There are three popular routes up, one from the Lake Annette Trail but the easiest being the PCT access described below.
Distance: 3.5 miles
Summit Elevation: 5,605 feet
Elevation Gain: 2,000 feet
Access: Good Gravel
WA Hikes & Climbs
Hike south along the PCT for approximately 2.0 miles. Keep an eye out for a faint trail leading uphill on the right. The trail junction should be marked with a cairn. Follow it up to a saddle at 4,700 feet between Silver Peak and Tinkham Peak. It continues over and up the south ridge of Silver Peak.
