About This Spot

Dege Peak is the eastern most highpoint along Sourdough Ridge. It has a commanding view west, up the White River to the Emmons Glacier and of the summit of Mt. Rainier. To the south Mt. Adams, the Goat Rocks and Highway 410 are visible. East is a plethora of major Cascade summits to be viewed from Mt. Stuart all the way north to Glacier Peak and Mt. Baker. Dege Peak is a relatively easy walk on a well maintained trail to an ideal vista point for photographing broad scenes of the Cascade Crest as well as Mt. Rainier. It is also an ideal location for photographing sunrises on the glacier clad east side of The Mountain.
