Experience hiking in the Great PNW Wilderness, from the North Cascades to the Salish Sea!


Our North Cascades Guided Hikes take you on an Adventure around Mount Baker, the North Cascades and Fidalgo Island on trails that accommodate your hiking level.

Meander through the enchanting rainforest guarded by its centuries old giants.  Follow alongside rivers and streams flowing with glacial meltwater.  Saunter around tranquil lakes.  Zigzag up mountain sides to admire snow-capped mountain peaks and glaciers.  Cross expansive flower-filled meadows.  Hike on coastal trails along the edge of the Salish Sea.

Stephanie, our expert local hiking guide, will match you up with a trail that best suits your hiking level.  And while hiking, she shares her knowledge of the Great PNW natural history, geology, rainforest ecology, flora and fauna.

Time of year, trail, road, snow/ice, unforeseen environmental conditions and weather forecasts dictate seasonal trail options.  Winter and Spring hiking is mostly offered on our very scenic coastal trails.

All are well-maintained dirt trails, with varying degrees of muddiness, rockiness and rootiness, that accommodate all hiking levels.

Easy Trails: little elevation gain (150-650 ft) and 1-4 mi round trip.  Suited for all levels.

Moderate Trails: moderate elevation gain (1000-1500 ft) and 4-6 mi round trip.  Suited for intermediate levels.

Strenuous Trails: significant elevation gain (1600-2200 ft) and 6-8 mi round trip.  Suited for avid hikers.

Please contact Stephanie for more information on choosing a trail and location.

Note: The first booking will set the hiking level and trail location for the day.  For a different level trail or location, book on an alternate day.  Please inquire prior to booking.
