Chikamin Peak is located in the scenic Alpine Lakes Wilderness 50 miles east of Seattle, Washington. It is situated at the north end of Gold Creek Valley and this position makes it visible to travelers driving Interstate 90 just east of Snoqualmie Pass at Hyak. The standard approach is via the Pacific Crest Trail from Snoqualmie Pass. Chikamin translates from the Chinook jargon as "money" or "metal".

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide: Climbing and High Routes, Volume 1, for a complete listing of all the established routes and approaches for Chikamin Peak.
