Description

Glacier Peak is Washington State's fourth highest summit and most remote of the state's major volcanoes. Although having over a dozen glaciers, this peak is much less glaciated than Rainier, Adams and Baker, due to its eastern location.
This mountain lies in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. There are no roads, concessions or annoying tourists. The Native American name is Dakobed.
Darcy Bard, A. H. Dubor, Thomas Gerdine and San Strom first ascended this peak in June 1897.
There aren't any crowds on this mountain. Plan for three to four days for the approach and ascent.

Getting There

White Chuck Road was the shortest and most popular approach, but floods in 2003 wiped it out and may still be closed.
Now the best way is to take the North Fork Sauk Trail to the PCT at White Pass, then into White Chuck Basin, which leads to the South Ridge.
