This hike is described as loop trip nirvana in the North Cascades by the Washington Trails Association.  It offers endless scenery with numerous picturesque alpine lakes, gorgeous open ridges, constantly changing views of Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan and steep-sloped wildflower meadows.   Be sure to bring your camera and consider possibly taking a refreshing dip in one of the lakes along the way.

Travel time is approximately 2 1/2 hours each way so plan on spending the entire day sharing this wonderful hike experience with your S'no Joke friends.
