Big Crow Basin Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Here’s a grand loop in the Norse Peak Wilderness, long on splendid scenery and alpine meadows—and short on crowds. Most visitors to these parts congregate on the 6856-foot peak that lends its name to this 52,000-acre wilderness, leaving the Big Crow Basin below it teeming with goats, elk, deer, and bear. Explore nearby Lake Basin, Cement Basin, and Bullion Basin and look for relics of the area’s mining past. And, not least, stand on Crown Point, reeling in a royal in-your-face view of Mount Rainier."

"This loop hike explores the amazing subalpine terrain just north of Crystal Mountain Ski Area. While your jaunt on the PCT is a mere mile, the surrounding terrain is stunning. Make sure to bring plenty of water: Sources are limited and the trail can be hot and dry on a midsummer day." Read more
