Me and a buddy started hiking around 12:30 or so. We took our time and didn't rush to the top, I'd say we reached the summit around 3:30 or 3:45. Perfect view of Rainier and the Seattle skyline popping out of the fog in the distance. The trail was totally walkable and uncovered with snow until around the mile #3 marker. We had Yak Trax on after the snow and ice began, and they came in very handy! On the way back down it began to get dark quickly, so we needed headlamps/flashlights for the remaining mile or so down the hill. The temperature was suberb the whole hike, the temperature inversion made miles 2-3 really warm. The wind on the summit required a jacket, but it wasn't freezing. A great day on Mt. Si!

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
