Chutla Peak is another prominent named peak located in the Tatoosh Range along the southern boundary of Mt. Rainier National Park in Washington State. Another high point along the Tatoosh Traverse, Chutla lies immediately southeast of Eagle Peak and northwest of Wahpenayo. Chutla commands exceptional views of Rainier and the eastern peaks of the Tatoosh on a clear day. A fair number of visitors hike to the Eagle-Chutla saddle -- although probably only a fraction of them continue on up the narrow northwest ridge to Chutla's summit.

Chutla is easily combined with Eagle just to the north on the same trip, and sometime is climbed in combination with Wahpenyao, or other peaks along the Traverse for a full day outing.
