Devils Dome/Jackita Ridge

Devils Dome-Jackita Ridge is a very strenuous backpack of 25 miles with 8,150 feet of gain.

Explore the western edge of the Pasayten Wilderness, east of Ross Lake in the North Cascades. Intimate views of Crater Peak and Jack Mountain are framed with alpine meadows covered in wildflowers are the reward on this 25 mile, partial loop trip. Logistics include a water taxi to Devils Junction on the east shore of Ross Lake, ascend Devils Dome, traverse Jackita Ridge, then descend past Crater Peak to Canyon Creek Trailhead on US-20. The strenuous journey pays off with the incredible beauty of this remote region, which sees few visitors. We'll start our journey at the Devils Junction trailhead on the East bank of Ross Lake. A planned first nights camp can be in the basin just west of and below Devils Dome (approximately 7 miles from Devils Junction TH). Second night can be approximately 10 - 12 miles along Jackita Ridge (wherever we find water). Last night can be near Devils Park.
