“A longer trail offering amazing scenery in northern Washington's Pasayten Wilderness Area.”— Steve Jackson
This is just a portion of the longer Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail, and thru-hikers of that trail will greatly enjoy this portion.
Alpine tundra dominates this trail, and visitors will enjoy mountain peaks along the Canadian border. Along the way, there are opportunities to see tungsten mines and possibly grizzlies. There are great peaks on either side of the trail that could be reached by a day-long detour. The trail is fairly well maintained and easy to follow, so navigation on a tour of the area should be straightforward.
On portions of this trail, it is easy to see the Canadian border and perhaps contemplate a trip to the border, as you'll only be a mile away. Cross country travel would be required to reach the border.
