Crater Mountain Trail

Crater Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Hike to one of the finest viewpoints in the entire North Cascades. Yes, the entire North Cascades. From an old lookout site 7000 feet into the troposphere, scan all four horizons. Waves of peaks, familiar and obscure, overload your vision.

Hundreds of them, from the sun-baked, cloud-piercing peaks of the east side to the jagged, ice-cloaked, spiraling summits of the west side. But all of this natural beauty has a price. The trek to Crater Mountain is among the most challenging hikes in this book. Are you up for it? All 5150 vertical feet?"
