Cutthroat Pass straddles the demarcation zone between the wet western and the dry eastern slopes of the Cascades. Easily meander to this broad saddle via the Paci?c Crest Trail (PCT), a 2600-mile National Scenic Trail following the Sierra and Cascade crests from the Mexican to the Canadian border. Veteran PCT hikers rank this section of trail from Rainy Pass to the Pasayten Wilderness among its most scenic stretches. Embrace an alpine world ?ush in wild?owers, larches, and stark, craggy, gold-hued mountains spiraling toward the heavens.
