Hiking Potato Hill

Potato Hill is a summit just off from the Pacific Crest Trail in the Mount Adams Area. There is no trail to the summit, and the top marks the boundary to the Yakama Reservation, which is off-limits to the public. It is possible to access the summit but be respectful of tribal lands and do not venture further east.

No views available from the top and heavy brush on the flanks of the mountain.
