Although this snowshoe trek makes use of a road for much of its length, the way is steep, generally icy, and the upper section follows narrow, avalanche-prone hiking trails. But when conditions are good, the physical exertion needed to tromp up this steep-sloped peak is richly rewarded with stunning views of the jagged crests of a multitude of North Cascade peaks. The most difficult part of this snowshoe hike is getting to the snow. Once the network of roads has been safely navigated, the fun can begin in earnest. This is a largely untouched winter wilderness setting, and finding solitude amid such staggering beauty is remarkable.
