The Central Cascades Traverse

The Central Cascades Traverse Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This wild crossing links traverses through The Enchantments, Wenatchee Mountains, and Snoqualmie High Peaks and is intended to inspire creativity in Cascadian exploration. These three spines form an obvious link-up when you view them from the North Cascades, and the diverse terrain they offer will not disappoint you.

As with any big traverse, the weather, snowpack conditions, and your team’s energy level can mandate alternate routes. Equally challenging is the decision to skirt remote summits in order to cover the necessary mileage to stay on plan. Since this route bypasses a desired high leg through some of the Wenatchee Mountains, consider it a general guide for this large crossing; perhaps some future skiers will build on it."
