Navaho Pass is an excellent introduction to the Teanaway area. Rife with wildflowers, fascinating geology, and just enough elevation gain to keep it interesting, this hike has just about everything that the Teanaway is known for.

While commonly used to access the Alpine Lakes backcountry, the trail up to Cathedral Pass is a worthy destination on its own. Old growth forest, lakes, subalpine meadows, and an up-close view of the dominating Cathedral Rock make for a satisfying and scenic day hike or short overnight.

Hiking through a deep canyon with a riparian zone, old-growth, and cliffs, this dramatic trail parallels the river with several crossings. In places, it climbs high above the river to avoid cliffs and other obstructions in the deep, rugged canyon.

This even-tempered route follows the Cooper River 4.5 miles to its headwater, passing through a diverse old-growth forest and terminating at an alpine lake sitting in the shadows of Big Summit Chief and Chimney Rock.

Spanning the Wenatchee Mountains and offering views of the backside of the Enchantment Peaks, the Beverly Turnpike trail (named for the two creeks it parallels) offers a straightforward out-and-back hike to a pass, or a more rugged thru-hike into the Ingalls Creek drainage. It also can be used to create loop hikes, or access nearby peaks. Hikers share this trail with mountain bikes and horses, and it isn’t uncommon to see occasional evidence of them along the way.

In the aftermath of the 2017 Jolly Mountain fire, this forest walk to a wonderful viewpoint has become a study in the effects of fire. Even so, the spring flowers are a beautiful contrast and the vista includes Mount Rainier.

Get a taste of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness on this short climb to a small but scenic lake. The trail winds from a lush meadow into old growth forest. Whether as a short day trek or a first-time overnight, a hike to Squaw Lake is worth the long road in.
