A small but significantly important wilderness in the extreme southern reaches of Washington’s Cascades, the 6050-acre Trapper Creek Wilderness protects an intact watershed and some of the region’s largest and oldest trees. Surrounded by a sea of clear-cuts and managed forest, this wilderness area is biologically rich and home to endangered spotted owls. And despite the dense forest, Observation Peak, a former fi re lookout, offers stunning views. Trapper Creek itself is a cascading delight, and seekers of solitude will delight in setting up camp along its banks.
