Thornton Lakes/ Trappers Peak Trail

Thornton Lakes/ Trappers Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Hike to the largest of three gorgeous backcountry lakes set in deep scoured cirques, or scramble up a narrow spine to Trappers Peak to snag some of the best alpine viewing this side of the Continental Divide.

Both destinations will cost you dearly in caloric output. Lots of elevation gain over steep and rough terrain is what keeps this day-hike-accessible corner of the North Cascades National Park from being overrun."
