Fagin's Hike of the Week- Davis Peak

Updated 10-6-2014

Davis Peak is east of Snoq Pass in the Salmon La Sac area. This offers great views and great fall hike. Be ready for a work out, 3900 foot gain. Best for views through this Friday 10-10, then we start to see  more clouds and chance of precipitation for the upcoming weekend.

Driving Directions: From Seattle drive east on I-90 to take exit 80 (signed "Roslyn/Salmon la Sac"). Head north on Salmon la Sac Road (State Route 903) about 15 miles, passing through Roslyn and past Cle Elum Lake to Salmon la Sac. Go right at the Y to stay on the main road (rather than entering the campground), and in 1.6 miles look for the Davis Peak trailhead and turn left and drive short distance to trail parking.

Trail Stats: 11 miles roundtrip and 3900 foot gain.
