An old pack trail reincarnated, Happy-Panther is both one of the oldest and newest trails in the North Cascades National Park Complex. It connects the Ross Dam Trail near Happy Creek with the East Bank Trail near Panther Creek, hence its colorful name. Panthers are also known to periodically prowl these grounds. Their emotional state leans more toward subdued than jubilant. Hikers, however, should be quite happy with this trail’s lakeside views, quiet forest, and enchanting waterfalls.
