Cady Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"When it comes to resplendent alpine meadows, the Henry M. Jackson Wilderness can’t be beat. And when it comes to ?ower romps within the wild area named for the longtime senator and champion of conservation, Cady Ridge ranks supreme. A multitude of blossoms proliferate along this mile-high ridge. But it’s the lupines that dominate—transforming Cady into a purple mountain majesty. Views are magni?cent too, from the inspiring Poet Peaks to snow-and ice-harboring, horizon-dominating Glacier Peak."
--Craig Romano, 100 Classic Hikes Washington (The Mountaineers Books).
"Give yourself a few days to explore this amazing area. Plenty of trail systems allow you to access cool routes that can be hiked as extended backpacking loops or as out-and-back day hikes from camp. The route described here ascends Cady Ridge to the PCT and heads north to Kodak Peak, where there are numerous hiking options once you ascend a bit. The many other trails referenced along the way will help you plan an unforgettable trip."
--Adrienne Schaefer, Day & Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Washington (Wilderness Press).
