Named for the American River in California that prompted a gold rush and made millionaires overnight, Washington’s American River never provided a mother lode, but its lofty ridge is rich in wildlife and sought by those who value solitude. This is a tough hike through the heart of lonely, cloud-catching country to deep hidden basins, steep craggy knobs, sunny windswept meadows, and dark forested nooks, where just a few hikers have ever laid bootprint.
