North Cascades Trail-Ale Tours
Join Skagit Guided Adventures small group North Cascades Trail-Ale Tours to experience the wilderness surrounding the North Cascades, Mount Baker and the Salish Sea! Celebrate afterwards with a cold, locally crafted beer at one of Skagit’s nine local breweries!
Skyline vistas of the North Cascades, Mount Baker, Mount Shuksan & Glacier Peak are simply breathtaking! Alpine meadow wildflowers explode in colorful displays. Fall colors paint mountainsides and river valleys. The PNW’s iconic old-growth forest, guarded by century-old giants, carpeted with ferns, and decorated with hanging strands of lichen is alive year-round. The Salish Sea coast harbors intriguing kelp and madrone forests.
The North Cascade mountains and Salish Sea islands offer a variety of trails that accommodate all hiking levels. Short, easy trails follow alongside waterfalls, rivers, streams, lakes and bays. Moderate and strenuous trails take you on switchbacks up mountain sides through old-growth forest and alpine meadows. All are maintained dirt trails with varying degrees of rootiness and rockiness.
Us Skagitonians are proud to say that “Our Dirt is in Our Beer! We love our low C footprint beer: grown, malted and brewed right here in NW Washington’s Skagit Valley!
