Silver Peak is located at Snoq Pass and great hike that takes you partly on the PCT..Note that there has been some new snow 9-19 and and 9-20 so be prepared. Perhaps 5 inches of snow near 5000' and the summit is it 5500'

Trail stats: 6.5 miles roundtrip.Hike south along the PCT for approximately 2.0 miles, until a faint trail leading uphill on the right side (west side). The trail junction is unofficially marked, but a large cairn is typically at the location. Follow the unofficial trail west for approximately 0.6 miles, until reaching a saddle (~4720' elevation) located between Silver Peak and Tinkham Peak. From the saddle, turn right (north) and follow the trail to and up the south ridge of Silver Peak. The trail traverses through forest and meadows, passing by a minor forested highpoint (~4900' elevation), before heading up the open talus south ridge of the mountain to the open rocky summit (5605' elevation). Here is the track
