This strenuous but short 7.4-mile out-and-back trip offers some of the best rewards for the effort in the Cascades. Climbing steeply through forest, the trail emerges into a wonderland of hanging glaciers, waterfalls, and soaring peaks.
From the pass, you can continue higher into the alpine country toward Sahale Arm, or drop toward the scenic outpost of Stehekin at the north end of Lake Chelan, accessible only by boat.
