Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day to bag two easy summits at the Sunrise area of Mount Rainier National Park: Dege and Antler peaks.

We arrived at Sunrise at about 10:30am and found plenty of parking in the main lot. Hiked up the trail to Dege Peak: no obstacles except for a patch of snow (about 20 ft) which was easy to cross. Trail is in great shape. This trail wasn't very busy at all, but traffic was definitely picking up by the time we were on our way back down. Made a side trip up the hill to bag Antler Peak on the way back: no real trail, but not too difficult to find a route to the top.

The parking lot at Sunrise had filled up completely when we returned; guess most of those people must have headed over towards Burroughs Mountain or something? We really lucked out with some great weather and had an excellent day at the park today!
