Middle/ South Fork Cascade River Trail

Middle/ South Fork Cascade River Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Glacier-fed, free-flowing, and surrounded by a fortress of jagged peaks glistening with snow and ice, the forks of the Cascade are classic North Cascades rivers.

The Cascade River Road keeps the North Fork company, but the South and Middle Forks remain wild and lonely. The trails up these wilderness valleys are rough, neglected by land managers and hammered by nature. If it’s solitude you seek, you’ll find it here—but you’ll have to work a little for it."
