It’s weird to think that I’ve been hiking along the I-90 corridor for almost 30 years and only just realized that I’ve never been up Bare Mountain before. It took us roughly 90 minutes to get to the trailhead, even though the hike starts not too far outside of North Bend. It’s easy to forget that 23 miles of dirt takes a long time to drive.
In the end, we were rewarded with solitude and views of peaks we’d never seen or heard of before. A peakbagger’s paradise!
