Fagin's Hike of the Week: Rock Mountain View Point

Updated August 20, 2017

This a hike east of Stevens Pass and it is steep hike and south facing. This can be a very hot hike when we have our heat waves, however with the current seasonable conditions this makes it much more pleasant. I hiked to the high meadow with great views and no need to hike to the top of the mountain. This hike was done earlier in the month when there was lingering snow and most (all) should be gone. Probably some lingering flowers in the high meadow.
Rock Lake
Rock Mountain 
Just to the east of Rock Mountain
Driving Directions: From Stevens Pass go east for  8.5 miles, turning left onto a dirt road leading  to the trailhead . The turnoff is just after milepost 73, approximately 0.4 mile east of the Washington Department of Transportation buildings.

Trail stats: To view of the lake close to 3.6 miles one way to 6200 feet and about 3300 gain. To go to the mountain it is 4.5 miles one way and 4200 foot gain.  Here is the track  to view
