Pyramid Mountain Tr1433 is an OAB ridge ride to Pyramid Mountain and beyond, on one of the highest elevation rides in the Cascade Range.
Like most ridge rides, Pyramid Mtn Tr1433 is undulating, with moderate to steep ascents.
You won't find any downhillers on this one...or at least not any that are having fun.
Best accessed from Lucerne (by ferry), the Glacier Peak Wilderness area to the west of Pyramid Mountain offers several epic backcountry hiking loops.
As one of the highest elevation rides in the Cascade Range, Pyramid Mountain Tr1433 is more rugged than the usual ridgeline ride, so be ready for some serious climbing...in both directions, because this one does not relent.
Pyramid Mountain Tr1433 can be combined with North Fork Entiat River Tr1437 into several challenging loop options, covered on that page.
The ascent from Pyramid Creek Tr1439 to Grouse Pass is a 2mi, 1375' (13%) climb, with three other sustained climbs to 7000' peaks...in each direction.
The 5.2mi (1970' ascent) Pyramid View Point Tr1441 is a very challenging side excursion, a ride within a ride.
1400' of that ascent is in the final 1.6mi to the 8243' summit, a bike-pushing 16% grade.
Although this is not the Everest 'death zone', the summit hike may still lead to a lingering desire for bottled oxygen.
