Hiking Mailbox Peak in winter and summer

The trail to middle fork Snoqualmie river
Mt Rainier

Besides the actual mailbox there is another ''sight''

Couldn't help not taking such a cliche picture

Downtown Seattle

The Snoqualmie river

As Mike McQuaide wrote in his book ''Day Hike! Central Cascades'' : " everybody should do mailbox peak once-and maybe just once." And i would agree with him. 

This is a very strenuous hike-straight up from about 1,000 feet to about 4,900 feet in 2.5 miles.
And as Mike wrote in his book "at the top, the rewards are big". 
But you will be the one to judge...

Attention: this is the trailhead for both-mailbox peak and the middle fork Snoqualmie river. 

The Mailbox Peak trail is to your left ( if you cross the creek,you've gone too far). 
There is no actual sign, but rather a big post warning you about the difficulty of the trail.
