It’s a short hike but stiff little climb to this forested knob that rises abruptly out of the surrounding farmed flats just outside of Enumclaw. Once the site of a fire lookout, a contested name, and nearly logged of its old growth in the 1980s, this little peak has a storied past. It has an interesting geological story to tell too—being the remnants of an old volcanic cone.
