How to get there

N47° 29' 01.0968"W120° 47' 23.9388"
This image of the snowy campsite at The Enhancements has a north facing view of Prusik Peak.
From Leavenworth, WA, you'll need to drive along Icicle Creek Road until you reach the Snow Lakes Trailhead (47.544100, -120.709693).
Hike, snowshoe or ski along Snow Lakes Trailhead for over 10 miles until you access the Core zone. In the winter or spring, the trails in the Core zone will be completely snow covered, so travel into the Core until you spot the view of Prusik Peak to the north.
As you hike, reference the GPS coordinates to find the exact location where I stood to get this perspective.
