For the best views of the long cut of Stevens Canyon, stride up this route to the vantage point at Faraway Rock. From there, you can look east along the length of the canyon, across the deep bowl of Louise Lake, and down the valley flanked by Stevens Ridge and the Tatoosh Range. You’ll also find wonderful views to the north.
