Nearly 2 miles long and situated in one of the largest glacial troughs in the Central Cascades, Waptus is the largest lake in the 394,000-acre Alpine Lakes Wilderness. There are campsites aplenty and many side-trip opportunities. But don’t feel compelled to move on. You won’t tire of staring across Waptus’ sparkling waters at a towering fl ank of granite peaks that shimmer in the light of both sun and moon.
