Northwest Forest Pass

This hike climbs the north side of the mountain to spectacular alpine tundra and panoramic views on Devil's Garden, situated on a high plateau below the heavily-crevassed Lava and Lyman Glaciers, then heads down to Avalanche Valley below the rugged and remote northeast side of the mountain. The trail makes two challenging stream crossings before reaching the gorgeous Devil's Garden.
