A long approach, 19 miles along the North Fork of the Quinault river, leads to this remote peak in the heart of the Olympic National Park wilderness. Mt Seattle is located 1 miles West of the Low Divide. The approach from Seattle Creek basin to the West offers the most direct route to the Mt Noyes-Mt Seattle ridge. From the ridge the route ascends around the rotten East side of the first peak to the South peak, which is slightly higher.
