Primary goals are Naturalist activity oriented, not peak bagging.  One of the most scenic sites with relatively easy access in the N Cascades.  That being said, the 34 switchbacks up to Cascade Pass make for a strenuous hike.  Preference  given to Seattle Naturalist students and grads.  With Leader permission only.
