Tanner Butte, OR | August 2016

Summit: 
W7O/CN-056

Tanner Butte is perhaps the most remote SOTA summit in Oregon's Northern Cascades. Despite many resources that point out the trail length at 17 miles, measured from the GPS track it shows up as right at 20 miles round trip, with 4500 feet of elevation gain.

Wildcat Mountain, OR | July 2016

Summit: 
W7O/WV-046

It makes for a very long day (about 17 miles total), but this Wildcat Mountain (WV-046) can also be reached from Huckleberry Mountain via the Plaza Ridge Trail #783 and the Douglas Trail #781. It's also quite beautiful - a stunning ridge hike in the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness.

Summit: 
W7O/CC-071

This pleasant summit requires a nice, moderate hike through a forested area, coming out onto a wildflower filled hillside meadow.  The summit is at the top of the meadow.  There are interpretive signs and a bench that provide a good operating position.

Scalplock Mtn, MT | July, 2016

Summit: 
W7M/FN-248

The Scalplock Lookout Trail is 4.7 miles and 3,100 vertical feet on a very nice trail that begins at the Walton Ranger Station near Essex, MT.  This is a less visited side of the Park.  No entrance fees are required and it is much less crowded than many other park trails.  The following link offers an excellent trail description:

Boulder Mountain, ID | July 2016

Summit: 
W7I/VC-110

Boulder Mountain is one of prominent mountains to the East of McCall Idaho.  It is just north of the very recognizable Jughandle Mountain.  Boulder Reservoir, Boulder lake and Louie Lake (at the base of Jughandle Mountain) are fairly popular summer day hikes in the McCall Area.  Boulder Mountain itself is probably rarely visited as it quite a bit farther than the popular lake destinations.

Stormy Mountain, WA | July 2016

Summit: 
W7W/CH-132

A nice hike through second growth forest will get you to the former fire lookout site on top of Stormy Mountain. You might consider activating Slide Peak, W7W/CH-202 as you'll be passing right by the trailhead for that summit.

Githens Mountain, OR | July 2016

Summit: 
W7O/WV-043

Githens Mountain in the Clackamas River drainage is a short, one mile hike and only about 500 feet of gain. It can be activated along with nearby Tumala (Squaw) Mountain from the same trailhead. Finding the summit may require a GPS, as it's not on the trail and isn't particularly distinct.
