In the Trails.com Climbing section you will find everything from easy summit scrambling and non-technical climbs to serious mountaineering, rock climbs, and alpine routes. With climbs throughout the major mountain ranges of the western United States, we have summits from Mount Rainier, Mount Hood, Mount Shasta, and other volcanoes in the Washington, Oregon, and California Cascades to Half Dome and Mount Whitney in the California Sierra Nevadas and even North America’s highest point at Mount McKinley in Alaska’s Denali National Park– something for climbers of all abilities and experience levels. Each climbing trip is a complete chapter from a climbing guidebook and includes a detailed route map, driving directions, summit elevation data, and a clear description of the route and the approach, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers. Every climb is linked to USGS topo maps from the climb overview page, and many also offer a host of additional features like photos, locator maps, alternate routes, permit requirements, and interesting natural, geological, and historical information on the climb and the region. To find the perfect climb for you, just click below on any state climbing section. Then browse by selecting a specific region or “Top Trail” from the list, or by simply clicking on the interactive state map.
