Horseshoe Basin Trail

Horseshoe Basin Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A land of immense natural beauty teetering on the extreme eastern end of the North Cascades, Horseshoe Basin has long been a favorite destination for backpackers. With sprawling alpine tundra, shimmering tarns, a half-dozen wide-open, easy-to-scramble summits, and spectacular wildlife observing, it’s no wonder visitors prefer to spend days here.

But Horseshoe Basin’s fairly easy approach and gentle terrain make it a dead ringer for day hikers too. You won’t be able to experience it all. But you’ll get a nice taste— and by traveling lightly in this precious area you’ll leave less of an impact than all of those backpackers."
