Patterson Mountain (Sun Mountain Trailhead)

  • Patterson Mountain

Take the loop hiking trail to the top of Patterson Mountain via two well established paths. Expect a vigorous climb and make sure to bring sunblock, water, and appropriate footwear. The trailhead is located immediately opposite the parking lot and climbs sharply uphill for a short distance before the trail splits at a gate. Either option will have you wandering through woodlands and shrub steppe steppe to eventually reach the summit (4.2 mi round-trip with approximately 1070’ of elevation gain). Expect a vigorous hike and spectacular 360 degree views of the Sawtooth, Pasayten and North Cascade mountain ranges as well as beautiful Patterson Lake and the upper reaches of the Methow Valley.
