Location
Dirty Harry's Peak Trail
Event Overview
Join us in creating more sustainable trails throughout the Exit 38 area and Dirty Harry's Peak Trail. This area has become overcome with “social trails” from its frequent use. In order to maintain the health of the region, volunteers will be working on building a long-lasting, easy-to-hike trail to take the place of these routes. The future Dirty Harry’s Peak Trail will eventually provide access to climbing areas via designated spur trails off of the main hiking trail. Volunteers help keep is area in good shape so people can come back each year to enjoy climbing and hiking opportunities.
Difficulty
Moderate to Strenuous
Age Restriction
Ages 14 and up.
What to Bring

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:

  • Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
  • Sturdy, close-toed shoes (absolutely no sandals)
  • Gloves

In addition, we recommend that participants bring:

  • Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
  • Rain gear
  • Big sack lunch
  • Water for the day (3 liters minimum)
  • Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc.
Driving Directions
Take I-90 to Exit 38, turn right and follow the road (old U.S. 10) as it goes under the freeway toward the State Fire Training Center. Cross the South Fork Snoqualmie River and drive through a yellow gate (about .2 mile from the underpass), which is locked by 4 p.m. At a bend in the road, look for an old track overgrown with alders (Dirty Harry's Road) heading uphill on your right. If the gate is closed, you can walk the road. There is no official trailhead or parking area, but there is parking beside the road. Round trip to Dirty Harry's Balcony is four miles with approximately 1,300 feet elevation gain. Dirty Harry's Peak is 11 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 3,400 feet.
