"The Seattle 5". The first Peak Challenge to tackle for those in the Seattle area itching to get out nearby. Includes 5 of the most popular peaks close to the city, offering the quickest entrée into the wilderness. These 5 peaks all lie east of the Seattle area with easy access off I-90, but be aware that these peaks can get super (super!) crowded. Arrive earlier than you think you should to get parking.
