Slide Mountain is located in the far northeast corner of Mount Rainier National Park, and is party to the Sourdough Mountains. The name derives from a large landslide on the west flank of the mountain which can be seen on satellite images. Slide Mountain has a vertical drop of more than a thousand feet on its western flank. The rock is unstable and subject to slides. The creek west of the mountain is called Lost Creek for an ancient slide that buried part of the creek in rubble from the mountain.

Prominence: 99 feet
