Mt. Aix is the dominant Cascades peak in the William O. Douglas Wilderness just east of Mt. Rainier National Park -- and ranks as the 39th most prominent peak in the Washington Cascades (7766' elevation). With a southwest exposure and located in Mt. Rainier's rain shadow, this peak is often accessible earlier in the season than many peaks of comparable height. Great views of the surrounding Cascade peaks and often mountain goats.
