A hike featured in 'Best Wildflower Hikes Washington'. June is the peak of the flower season here. This trail follows Chiwaukum Creek 5.5 miles into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, climbing at a gentle grade. We will be well below the snow line starting at 1800 ft. and rising only to 3350 ft. Here in the Chiwaukum Mountains of the eastern Cascades rain is much less likely than on the west side. MODERATE PACE with photography stops.
