Kaleetan Peak via Denny Creek Trail 1014
This is a difficult out and back trail to Kaleetan Peak in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Parking is limited until the main Denny Creek TH parking reopens. NF5800 is now one-way beginning 1/4 mile BEFORE left turn for the Denny Cr TH and the upper parking lot is ALWAYS full in summer unless you are there very early, as it is shared with the family-friendly Franklin Falls hike. This means if you cannot find parking on the road, you'll have to drive 4 miles up to Snoqualmie Pass, get on the highway west back to exit 47. I suggest parking on NF5800 just as you begin to see the campground areas about 1/2 - 1/4 mile BEFORE the turn to the TH.
This trail goes by Keekwulee Falls, Snowshoe Falls, and Melakwa Lake.
This is a difficult hike of 11 miles roundtrip and 5700 feet of elevation gain to the crown Snoqualmie Pass area peaks, requiring route-finding before July when much of it is not melted out. In late August and early September, gorging on blue/huckleberries possible. The summit block looks daunting from afar, but is nothing more than Class 3.
No, unless they are > 10 and are very fit
