Description

Dragontail Peak is located within the Enchantments, off of the Icicle Creek access road. Park at the end of the road and begin hiking on the Mt. Stuart trail, but at around 2.5 miles go left towards Colchuck Lake (there will be a sign at the split in the trail). Continue until you get to Colchuck lake. Dragontail Peak is on the South end of the lake, just right of Asgard Pass.

Getting There

Drive to Leavenworth Washington, take Icicle Creek road, then turn onto Bridge Creek road, and park at the end of the road at the Mt Stuart trail head.
