North Cascades off the Mountain Loop Hwy. Meet at Mount Dickerman trail head. This trail area is famed for its botanical richness, a waterfall, alpine meadows, views of the impressive wall of Big Four Mountain and the white volcano of Glacier Peak. Because of the tight parking and other issues, the trail is being re-routed so that it leads off from the Mount Dickerman trailhead.
This is the regular Thursday work party, so we will be meeting at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast at Subway, in Granite Falls. When you enter Granite Falls on 92, look for Subway on the left-hand side of the road. All volunteers are welcome join us. It is a great opportunity to meet your co-workers. Otherwise you can meet us at the trailhead at the regular time.
**Trail to be re-routed to start from Mount Dickerman trailhead** Currently, this trail is 3.8 miles one-way and is considered a moderate hike. The trail to Perry Creek Falls is rocky but well-defined. It climbs continuously but not steeply through timber and open talus slopes. This trail area is famed for its botanical richness, a waterfall, alpine meadows, views of the impressive wall of Big Four Mountain and the white volcano of Glacier Peak. An easy pace for the first two miles to Perry Creek Falls, the falls is a good place to eat lunch and even has its own outhouse, no less. After another 1.6 miles, the trail leaves the forest and enters the first of many expanses of meadow. Most folks stop here and take a nap before heading back down. But the more determined will continue, following the increasingly narrow trail to the top of Mt. Forgotten at an elevation of 6005 feet, a 3100 foot elevation gain.
