Tatie Peak/ Grasshopper Pass Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Ranking among the supreme ridge-running, cloud-probing, peak-peering jaunts in all of the North Cascades, the trek to Grasshopper Pass will have you hopping with joy with its nonstop horizon-spanning views of jagged ridges and colossal summits.

Best of all, this alpine rapture is achieved with minimal effort. The trail starts high and stays high. And with the trail’s gentle ups and down, most hikers young and old, two and four legged will have no problem making the journey."

Grasshopper Pass was previously unknown to me, but I did my research to find an area of the North Cascades that would be heavily populated with larches. I wasn't disappointed! We planned our trip for the fall and were lucky enough to have a few inches of snow on the ground. There's nothing like golden larches against a background of snow. The first part of the trail seemed fairly steep, but the grades were more gradual the rest of the way. We had some trouble finding the trail due to the snow, but otherwise it was fine. Stunning views almost the whole way, and never saw another soul. This is definitely a must do hike in the fall. There seemed like there were some meadow areas that might have wildflowers in the spring, but I'll have to go back in July and check that out.
