Hannegan Peak is a nice hiking trail peak in some of the most fantastic scenery in Washington. Most of the 5 mile trail has views to enjoy...big views. Because this area gets big snow, the trail will have snow well through June even though it is a south facing trail near the top. We went up at the end of June and the pictures will show there was still a significant about of snow. This is a perfect kid climb whether carrying them or older ones hiking on their own.

Take exit 255 off I-5 (Sunset/Mt. Baker Highway). Go east 31 miles to Glacier, continue past Glacier on the Mt. Baker Highway 542 for 12.5 miles to a left turn on FS road #32 (Hannegan Road). Follow for 5 miles staying left at turns to the end of the road and trailhead.
Just hike up the gentle trail as it climbs 4 miles to Hannegan Pass. From the pass, turn left (small sign may be on tree) and climb the final mile to the summit.
