Mt. Peak/Pinnacle Peak/Mt. Pete (local hikes series)

Bench dedicated to Jon Nichols at the base of Mt. Peak.

Bench dedicated to Jon Nichols at the base of Mt. Peak.

This trail is about 2 miles round trip and located in Enumclaw around the King County Fairgrounds. It is steep and relatively short (it took me about 1 hour round trip) but offers a good challenge for the muscles and allows you to work up a sweat. The views from the top are not breathtaking, but are a nice reward for climbing up. At the bottom of the trail is a bench that is dedicated to the late Jon Nichols who died in April of 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer. At the top you will find a plaque in memory of his tenacious life.
