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.

Spectacle Lake is truly worthy of the name - it's quite a sight to see. Nestled at the base of Chikamin Ridge and just a short jaunt from the Pacific Crest Trail, this lake is one of the true gems of Snoqualmie Pass.

From Navaho Pass, the trail to Navaho Peak is siren-like, pulling you towards the summit long after you realize how tired you are. But for peak-baggers, or those simply interested in getting a gorgeous view from a relatively easy-to-navigate peak, the views are worth the extra effort.

Discover a pleasant alpine lake alternative to nearby, crowded Lake Ingalls. Tranquil Lake Ann can't boast the same dramatic view of jagged Mount Stuart, but it has its fair share of scenery, especially during fall when the larches around it turn to gold.

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.

There's no question why Ingalls Lake is one of the most popular destinations in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. It is a stunning blue lake, set high in a basin beneath rocky peaks, showcasing striking Mount Stuart as its backdrop. The trail to this treasure is filled with delights, both for the summer adventurer as well as for those hikers who appreciate fall colors. Views of the craggy Esmeralda Peaks, a walk through beautiful Headlight Basin plus a pretty picture of the imposing Stuart Range are just a few of the wonders along the way.

Longs Pass provides unbelievable views, but only after an unbelievable amount of elevation gain. In less than 3 miles, you'll climb more than 2000 feet in elevation -- that's quite like climbing a staircase for three miles. It's shady the first half, but soon comes out into an exposed area; bring as much water as you can carry!

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.

The Teanaway is a fabulous drainage with year-round opportunities. Koppen sits on an easily accessed ridge line which lacks the crowds of many of the other hikes in this area. Commanding views of the Stuart Range, and further away, the Pacific Crest make for stunning scenery. Although this trail’s rewards are an end unto itself, it may also easily be combined with numerous other peaks, ridgelines, or drainages for longer loop trails.

The Pete Lake trail is a mild-mannered path with something to offer for hikers, campers, children, birders, wildlife enthusiasts, and aquaphiles. 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.
