Overview

While few of the jagged, glacier-clad peaks east of Puget Sound exceed 9,000 feet, their vertical rise is on par with that of the Rockies. These are the Northern Cascades—a vast wilderness that is home to mountain lions, elk, mountain goats, and even a few grizzly bears. With hundreds of miles of pathways that penetrate deep into the forests and climb to the tundra of mountaintops, it is just waiting to be savored by hikers and backpackers. Hiking the North Cascades describes 105 of the region’s best and most varied hikes, from a few choice short excursions to a whole host of day trips and overnight treks.
Whether you want to explore the region’s gateway—the broad, green Skagit River—or enjoy panoramic vistas such as those atop McGregor Mountain, this comprehensive guide is your passport to one of the most beautiful and truly wild reaches of North America.
