Publisher Comments:

Lace up your boots and sample sixty-two of the finest hiking trails the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area has to offer. This rugged, 393,000-acre region at the southern margin of the North Cascades provides breathtaking scenery and a variety of challenges and elevations. Choose from easy outings along the Skykomish River, exhilarating summit ascents near Snoqualmie Pass, backcountry treks around Stevens Pass, and sublime parkland hikes in the Teanaway River area. Veteran hiker and outdoors writer Jeff Smoot will introduce you to these and more.

Inside you'll find: up-to-date trail information; accurate directions to popular as well as less-traveled trails; difficulty ratings for each hike; optional side trips and overnight hikes; zero-impact hiking and camping tips.

Miles of hiking trails surround more than 600 glacier-carved lakes tucked among the craggy peaks of the central Cascade Range that are the centerpiece of this magnificent wilderness. This guide not only covers trails inside the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, but includes many of the popular hikes across the highway for a total of 62 of the best day hikes and short overnight hikes in the region.
