Saunter along a pristine waterway birthed by massive ice fields and glaciers in the heart of the North Cascades wilderness. Explore wide gravel banks ideal for siestas and peering up at the towering and rugged summits surrounding you. Marvel at massive cedars and their adaptive growing techniques, from hugging boulders to sprouting in riparian zones. With its mere probe into the mostly roadless North Cascades National Park, this trail will make you feel like you’re miles away from civilization.
