Hiking Teanaway Butte via Jungle Creek

The Jungle Creek Road ends well below the top of Teanaway Butte but is a non motorized route. Unfortunately, the road is maddeningly flat and hikers are in for four miles of road with just 1,000 feet of elevation gain. The final slog is what pushes you to the top at 4,760 feet.

Just beyond the four mile spot, the road turns sharply to the left, and another road continues straight on. Head straight for another 100 feet, and then head up the north ridge of Teanaway Butte's false summit. The climb varies in grade, from a gentle slope to a steep slog.

Your last push is after dropping 80 feet, only to climb again to the summit. This is the steepest part of the hike. At the summit, it is possible to see Yellow Hill, Malcolm and Johnson Peaks. When it is particularly clear, look for Mount Stuart, as well as other notable Teanaway peaks, and of course Mount Rainier.

Head back the way you came, being careful on the descent.
