August 19-21, Mon. -Wed. – Annual North Cascades Car Camp. Join us for three days of hiking in the spectacular North Cascades. Explore the unique geology of this region. We will camp two to three nights at Poplar Flat Campground along the Twisp River Road access to the Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness and North Cascades National Park. It is suggested that participants also camp Sunday night due to the travel distance and early hike start time the following day - Twisp Pass, Libby Lake and North Lake – see hike descriptions below. Easier hikes may be led by a second leader, such as Twisp River Trail, concurrently with more strenuous hikes. Register with program center or online.
