Hike to Guye Peak, Snoqualmie Pass, Washington

Guye peak is due north of Snoqualmie Pass in Washington State. The peak is 5168 feet above sea level. A tril to Guye Peak starts at the Alpental Ski Area parking lot at 3100 feet above sea level. If I had to guess I would say that the trail is 0.5 to 1 miles in length.

I started up the trail about 3 pm on July 21, 2002 with temperatures in the low 80's. The hike up took about 1 hour and 20 minutes from parking lot to peak. Of course the trip back to the parking log was a little faster (50 minutes).

Red Mountain (that is it's name) Snoqualmie Mnt. from Guye Peak. I believe this is Lundin Peak.
