Round Mountain can easily be seen from SR 530 as you drive to Darrington from Arlington.  This Mountain is northwest of Darrington, coordinates - 48.3262201. N - 121.7504118 W.  The elevation to the peak is 5,305 feet or 1,617 meters.  When you look at the mountain it becomes obvious how it got its name, simply the shape of the mountain is pretty round.

You can get some nice vistas of Round Mountain while driving the scenic Forest Service #18 to Cumberland Pass.  There is also a climbing route, for skilled climbers, to the peak with a total panorama of vistas with the two legendary giants, Mt. Baker to the north and Glacier Peak to the southeast.
