Skyline Divide

Skyline Divide Professional Review and Guide

"This route represents some of the best combinations of trail features you’ll find in the Pacific Northwest. You get to explore high alpine country, but you also get much of the climbing over with during the drive to the trailhead. You experience pristine old forests and sprawling alpine meadows.

The local scenery is blessed with a plethora of flora and fauna, and the distant views are filled with stunning peaks and glacier-covered volcanoes. And the trail is short enough that you can enjoy sunrise and/ or sunset from the route during a simple day hike if you want. The one thing this route doesn’t have is a lot of water—pack plenty for you and your dog."

A sublime hike, affording glorious views on top, and enchanting old-growth forests punctuated by flower-filled meadows on the way up. Admittedly steep (especially parts of the skyline itself), but fundamentally rewarding.
