Channel your inner mountain goat on this steep hike to aptly-named High Pass, and bask in glorious views of Glacier Peak and the surrounding mountainscape.
Start up the Buck Creek Trail from the Trinity Trailhead. The route steadily climbs 3,100 feet in 9.6 miles to Buck Creek Pass. Find a site to dump your gear, then proceed through the camping area to pick up the High Pass Trail.
Continue climbing another 3 miles and 1,400 feet of elevation, first circling around the west side of Liberty Cap, then contouring high above Triad Lake, to end at the low saddle that is High Pass.
Pause, view, breathe.
