Kettle Crest South Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A national recreation trail, Kettle Crest Trail 13 traverses the spine of the high Kettles from just south of White Mountain all the way to the Deer Creek summit.

One of Washington’s finest high-country long-distance trails, it can be hiked piecemeal when combined with spur trails, or all the way through on a three- or four-night journey."
