CHS 2 Hike - Perry Creek

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)

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,400 ft
  • Pace: 2.0-3.0 mph

We will meet at 7:30am at the Ash Way Park and Ride in Lynnwood (more details to follow). 

Just a heads up that there could possibly be a challenging (but very doable) river crossing which will be determined by how much runoff and flow is passing through by that time.  Also there is a slight chance we will encounter snow on the trail as we approach Forgotten Meadows.
