Trail Report: Saddle Mountain

Saddle Mountain was on my to do list and was one of my featured places. I finally got the chance to do it when my boyfriend and I took a trip to Astoria, Oregon.

The hike itself was fairly easy until the very end. After about 2 miles, we went down into the saddle, and then had to go back up - that was the steepest part.

Once we got to the top, we could see the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia River and Astoria, the town we were staying in. We could also see four mountain peaks - Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, and Mt. Adams. It was a gorgeous day and we were lucky to have good visibility.
