Welcome Pass and the High Divide Trail

Welcome Pass and the High Divide Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Welcome to the High Divide, an emerald carpet laden with dazzling bouquets draped over a rolling mile-high ridge. Only one problem with this invitation—delivering your reply will be downright demanding.

The hike to Welcome Pass is a doozy: 2800 feet of elevation gain in 2.5 miles. And talk about switchbacks. There are more than sixty—count ’em! But once you make the grade, Welcome Pass extends a warm benvenuti and a sincere invite to poke around on the wide-open slopes of the divide, drinking fine views and savoring precious alpine moments."

A geat hike for the enthusiast with some of the most challenging terrain I've ever hiked but well worth he effort whenn you finally get a good solid look at the breath taking views that could convince anybody why their ever was a mountain man. The best view of all is at the talles peak looking right out at Mt. Baker...which is so close you think you could touch it.
