This is a loop hike starting at the Cathedral Pass trailhead, hike to Cathedral Pass, north on the PCT to Deception Pass and returning via the Hyas Lake trail, ending at the Deception Pass trailhead.  The two trailheads are located very near each other.  

Driving to the trailhead, there is one paved, creek crossing at Scatter Creek.  Higher clearance vehicles  are recommended, depending on the water depth, which was recently reported as 5 inches.  I've had no problem in my Forester.  

There is one challenging creek crossing.  Wet feet are highly likely.  

When you register, please email to let me know whether or not you are bringing a dog so I can increase the number of hikers as appropriate.
