Absolutely stunning! This place was amazing, I would love to go back in the summer to swim. Tons of little falls on the side falling off of the cliffs, and Steep Creek Falls was amazing in its self! I've never seen anything like it! This is a must do.

Hike to Elk Pass via "the Knife"

Washington / Snowgrass Flat Trailhead

This is a rather long out and back, however, it can also be done as a backpack, which would give you more time to explore the Goat Rocks Wilderness, which is highlighted in other Adventures.

Hike to Snow Lake, WA

Washington / Snow Lake Trail

This hike gets crowded fairly quickly so get there early. The parking lot is very large so parking is not really a problem.
