This hike is part of Annual North Cascades Car Camp from August 25-27, Mon.-Wed. Join us for three days of hiking in the spectacular North Cascades. Explore the unique geology of this region. We will camp two nights at Colonial Creek Campground just off the North Cascades Highway. It is suggested that participants also camp Sunday night due to the travel distance and early hike start time the following day.
