  • This mountain is the highest point in this state and is a prominent landmark visible up to 100 miles away.
  • Due to convenient access and a minimum of technical climbing challenges, about 10,000 people attempt to climb this mountain each year.
  • A hiking trail built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s circles around this mountain for a 40.7 mile hike. The Pacific Crest Trail shares a portion of this trail for about 11 miles.
  • This peak is home to 12 named glaciers and snowfields and is also home to six ski resorts.
  • One of the ski resorts on this mountain has a lodge that was built in the 1930s and is a National Historic Landmark. This lodge was used for some exterior shots for the movie The Shining.

Too easy? Enter the name of this mountain in the comments below then forward this to a friend to see if they know the answer. Extra points if you’ve climbed to the top this mystery peak.

    I’ve climbed Mt. Hood twice. Once by the standard south side route. Once via Leuthold Couloir. On another (aborted) trip up the south side we turned around due to rock fall.

    Looks like Pike’s Peak to me. I went up the cog train, but didn’t drive it or hike it, back in 1989 and LOVED it!
