This is a steep but easily accessed 8 point peak near the town of Mazama, WA.  If you're in the Twisp, Winthrop or Mazama area, it's a must do.  It contains a fire lookout tower and great views of the Methow valley and North Cascade peaks.  It's only 2.5 miles long, has a fire lookout tower at the top but some sections are very steep.  Call ahead to the ranger's office and see if Lighting Bill will be in the fire lookout.  If so, be sure to bring him a cold beer!

Directions: From Winthrop drive west on State Route 20 and turn right just before the Weeman Bridge onto Okanogan County Road 1163. Drive 3.4 miles turning right onto Forest Service Road 52. Drive 2.2 miles and turn left on Forest Service Road 5225. Drive 3.3 miles and turn right on Forest Service Road 5225-200. Drive 2.5 miles to the trailhead
