Pacific Crest - Stevens Pass North Trailhead

  

This heavily-used trailhead provides access to Pacific Crest Trail #2000 (Stevens Pass N.) and Pacific Crest Trail #2000 (Stevens Pass S.). There is a daily fee per vehicle parked at the trailhead, and approved recreation passes may be accepted as payment.

From Stevens Pass heading north the Pacific Crest Trail traverses popular Henry M. Jackson and Glacier Peak Wildernesses before entering the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area, North Cascades National Park, and Pasayten Wilderness. The prime attraction here is Glacier Peak, and the rugged, roller coaster, switch-backing route around it offers a memorable experience to trail users.
