This moderate 10-mile hike traverses a spectacular section of the Pacific Crest Trail from Rainy Pass to Cutthroat Pass. Along the way forests give way to the open, windswept pass surrounded by rugged peaks. Come here in fall for impressive displays of golden larch trees, which blanket the upper slopes of the basin. You can either retrace your steps from the pass, or leave a car at the Cutthroat Creek Trailhead for a scenic point-to-point hike past Cutthroat Lake.
