Had a perfect sunny day hiking Maple Loop Pass in August 2016. Everywhere you turned there was a valley, beautiful mountain peaks and alpine lakes. The hike up was a steady climb and any reasonable fit adult or older child could tackle it if they are used to a bit of hiking. No animals spotted which surprised us. Want to... 更多
I spent three days in North cascades and the rangers obviously suggested Maple pass and Cascade pass. I did Maple pass on day 1...I started early to beat all the foot traffic (go to the parking lot at the crack of dawn..it gets quite busy late morning). there were a couple more people. I did the clockwise loop (in hindsight... 更多
Great hike with awesome views. Hiked this trail early october. The fall colors were stunning. Did this counter clockwise. I continued my day hiking the Blue Lake trail which is a gem!!! It's a small hike so, if you have time, don't miss it!!
An energetic hike, but worth it! We started counterclockwise, and made it to above Heather Lake and Meadows. As it was a very hot day, we decided to go back the way we came, the distance via Maple Pass was the same.
It is true that the snow doesn't melt on this trail till late July. It was impassable in mid July just past lake ann. But the views of Lake ann from above were all as described. I thought it at least moderate, but it was our first hike of the trip.

Do remember energy bars, lots of water, lots of layers and warm hat if early season. Don't go without ice axe and crampons if you do go before 7/15. Our hike, on 6/25, included... 更多
Hiked this October 3rd and all the fall colors were out in full glory. The larches we're golden beauties. It's an absolutely amazing and jaw dropping hike with so much to offer every hiker. Well worth the effort. I took so many pictures my phone went dead so take along a backup battery pack! Make sure to take the trail... 更多
This was a recommended hike that did not disappoint. It's of medium difficulty, with some beautiful views. We hiked it in the fall and the foliage colors were spectacular. The lake views were special. You hike up enough to get a great view of the peaks in the North Cascades National Park. You even get to reach the edge of... 更多
We got extremely lucky with the weather and could see for miles. The views were absolutely stunning and the hike was not too difficult. Definitely worth it!
