Here’s the beef on Cow Heaven. It’s a steep and demanding climb through thick forest culminating in lonely alpine meadows. The cows are long gone from this former summer grazing area high above the Skagit Valley, but you can feast to your heart’s content on splendid views of snowy North Cascades summits. A great conditioner and good choice for solitude, if you’re feeling energetic, follow this steer-way to heaven all the way to the rocky Helen Buttes for even grander views.
