Trails of the North Cascades


Did you know that there are about 386 miles of trails in the North Cascades, some that are very steep? Also that if a family goes to the Noth Cacades there can only be 12 people maximum in the family. The trails include 6 suspension bridges, totaling to about 5,274 feet-15,888 feet! Finally, did you know that the most up-to-date information on trails and climbing conditions is available at the wilderness information center in Marblemount or the Golden West Visitor Center in Stehekin? Why are trails important? Trails are important because if there were not trails people would destroy the animal's habitat or environment. Trails are also important because they help people not to get lost. Some of the trails names are Diablo Lake Trail, Deer Creek Trail, and the Sourdough Creek Trail. The trails that I just named are the trails that we most likely are traveling on.

On the last morning of Mountain School, I hiked with Steve and the Flying Squirrels up to see the waterfall. The last part of the trail was up stone steps and scrambling over boulders. We learned that sometimes it is harder hiking down than hiking up! Thanks to all the kids helping the adults and each other, we all made it safely up and down the trail. Looking up at the waterfall was breathtaking. That hike will always be one of my best memories of Mountain School.
