Point 6951

Point 6951 is located in the northeast quadrant of Mount Rainier National Park in a sub-range called the Sourdough Mountains. It is situated on Sourdough Ridge immediately west of Antler Peak, east of Mount Fremont, and at the north end of Huckleberry Basin. The south face is covered by meadows and small trees. The north aspect is rocky and steep. The Sourdough Ridge Trail traverses 200 feet below the summit, but in spite of the proximity of the trail, the National Park Service discourages leaving the trail to climb it. Seasonally, the slopes of Point 6951 are covered with wildflowers such as lupine, Indian paintbrush, phlox, aster, and more. Point 6951 is visible from the Sunrise Visitor Center where it floats above lovely Yakima Park. On a clear day one can see as far as Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, Mount Stuart, Mount Aix, and the Goat Rocks Wilderness. Prominence: 191 feet.
