CHS 2 Hike

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Perry Creek

This is quite a lovely hike up through a Forest Service natural research area so it's basically undisturbed and full of waterfalls, wildflowers, meadows, fabulous views (and maybe a bear or two). It's located in the North Cascades off of the Mountain Loop Highway and shares the same parking area with the Mt Dickerman trailhead. CHS hike led at a CHS 2 pace (2.0-3.0 mph)
