22 miles of hiking • 5500' elevation gain •
Long Whittier loop starting at S. Coldwater TH, up the ridge and then down the Lakes Trail and up Coldwater Canyon, across Whittier and then back down the Boundary Trail past Mt. Margaret and Coldwater Peak to complete the loop. Spectacular weather, plenty of wildlife (frogs, elk, goats, ladybugs, snakes), huckleberries are peaking, great views, excellent rugged and varied terrain.
Possibly the best dayhike in southern Washington.
