A dramatic cirque at the head of the Stehekin Valley, Horseshoe Basin will enthrall you with its cavalcade of cascades, sprawling fl owered meadows, and old mine burrowed in a steep and forbidding wall. Hike up and over popular and spectacular Cascade Pass, and then drop into Pelton Basin surrounded by towering peaks capped in snow and ice. While the way is popular with climbers and backpackers hiking through to Stehekin, the masses bypass Horseshoe Basin, making it a ringer for solitude.
