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 the San Juan Islands 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, Skagit’s 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 DICTATE TRAIL OPTIONS. All are well-maintained dirt trails, with varying degrees of muddiness, rockiness and rootiness.
Easy Trails: little elevation gain (150-650 ft) and 1-4 mi round trip. Suited for all levels.
Moderate Trails: moderate elevation gain (1000-1600 ft) and 4-6 mi round trip. Suited for intermediate and avid hiking levels.
Note: time of year, trailhead accessibility, snow/ice, trail, road conditions, fire smoke, unforeseen events and weather forecasts can ultimately dictate trail options up to the day of the hike.
