Stroll first through deep forest, then up, up, and away to an alpine world flush in meadows, larches, and delectable views of stark craggy mountains spiraling to the heavens. From the pass, a broad saddle teetering on the demarcation zone between the wet west and the dry east, there are exploratory side-trip options. And while this section of the Pacific Crest Trail usually teems with fellow hikers, it’s never shy of wild critters. With everything from frantic ground squirrels, to lumbering bears, to wallowing mountain goats, you’ll feel like you’ve walked onto the set of Wild America.
