Guye Peak is a prominent rhyolite summit near Snoqualmie Pass. It offers a variety of climbs at many levels of dificulty. It is easily accessible from the Seattle area for day climbs in summer and winter.

Guye Peak is named for F.M. Guye who prospected on the peak now named for him around 1882. He later claimed and patented 12 mining claims in the Alpental valley and on the mountain roughly where the trail presently exists.

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 1, for information on the established climbing routes on Guye Peak.
