Thanks to Ronald James for adding this peak.

Lundin Peak is located 3 miles north of Snoqualmie Pass within the Alpine Lakes Wilderness which is administered by Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The small peak was named for J.W. Lundin, a pioneer forest ranger. The peak can be seen briefly by westbound Interstate 90 travelers at Snoqualmie Pass, weather permitting of course. Lundin Peak is situated immediately west of Red Mountain at the northern head of Commonwealth Basin on the west side of the Cascade Crest. A one-day approach can be made from Snoqualmie Pass on the Pacific Crest Trail, leaving the trail to follow the Commonwealth Creek Trail to a pond below the saddle between Red and Lundin Peak, and then scramble past two false summits to the true summit. Not easy scrambling, class 4 minimum, with exposure. Rope optional. An approach can also be made from Cave Ridge.

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 1, for information on the established climbing routes on Lundin Peak.

Prominence: 217 feet
