CHS 2 Hike - Boulder River

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Boulder River

North Cascades Campout weekend CHS2 hike.

  • Easy/Moderate
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 8.4 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,510 ft

We will be heading out from the campground (all packed up and ready to go home) at 7:30am.  From there we will take all of our cars to the trail-head.

I have been hearing what an incredible hike this is for years, and I am very excited to be able to finally see what all the fuss is about.  I know you can see that CHS 1 is doing this hike on Saturday, but us being CHS 2, I have no doubt we will get farther and higher.  Check out the beauty:
