Trip Report: Kendall Katwalk

Share this post!

I chose to embrace fall this weekend and our friend Adam and I hiked to Kendall Katwalk. It was a beautiful and cool day in the mountains.

Some hikes are about what you expect them to be, some feel harder than they should be and some feel easier than they should be. This one seemed easier than it was and I was prepared for a tough hike (at 2400 feet of elevation gain and 11-12 miles roundtrip) but it was really pleasant and the climb was mostly gradual. We had to stop just short of the Katwalk due to time but still enjoyed amazing views of Kendall peak and all the mountains around Snoqualmie pass.

Mount Rainier even tried to come into view!

It was also a great day to notice small details along the trail, like how delicious it smelled, the fall colors, the wildflowers that have faded to fall, and even the electric green moss

Overall a great day in the mountains!
