Nooksack Cirque Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Guidebook pioneers Ira Spring and Harvey Manning described the Nooksack Cirque as one of the most dramatic spots in the North Cascades. I can’t argue with that.

One of the region’s largest cirques (a glacially carved amphitheater), it’s shadowed by snow-shrouded 9127-foot Mount Shuksan and flanked by sheer cliffs that have been polished by eons of ice and cascading runoff. These are the headwaters of the North Fork Nooksack, and the wild river makes a dramatic departure from its icy spawning grounds."
