Backpacked to Thornton Lakes, set up camp, then scrambled up Trappers before dinner. Fun climb, incredible views from the top, a new favorite!

My first summit in the real North Cascades. What a view! Huge cornices on the ridge.

Hiked from Thornton Lakes trailhead. This was my only good weather day while visiting the North Cascades. Thankfully the view of the Pickets and surrounding area was awesome.

Climbed with Maddie on the hottest day of the year so far (88!). It was a sweaty hike through the woods though, luckily. Veiws start at the pass basically, and they get dramatic quick! The Pickets, Mount Triumph, and the many glaciers made this trip an instant favorite.

01/11/15 Summited and spent the night on the summit. The sun rise was glorious and the mountains revealed themselves in their winter cloaks (Instagram: @moonmountainman)
09/04/17 Sunset hike. My daughter Zoey's first summit at just over 4 months old.

MarkDidierCloudy but Still Beautiful!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2013


It was a cloudy day, but we still had pretty amazing views from the ridge to the summit. Pickets were mostly socked in though.

This was essentially a walk-up, but I was surprised at how rugged the trail was - all the way to the ridge. And I was surprised by the lack of views until you get to the ridge. It definitely is a walk in the woods until the ridge! But after that, the eye candy is amazing!

The drive to the trailhead was less of an issue than advertised. At least when we were there any 2WD vehicle could easily make it. A few steep gravel sections near the top, but no big problem.

Probably my first 'good' hike when I was just starting out, the full meal deal from valley floor to summit.

What a wonderful day! Later in the day the sun came out and we got a great view of the Pickets along with other peaks seen from here. Can't wait to hit up this area again!

I have found a new respect for the Pickets. When they first came into view I started freaking out and making a lot of noise. This is one of the most scenic hikes I've done all year. I'm going to recommend it to all the hikers I know. From the summit we continued along the ridge to "X Mountain".

SummitQueenBeautiful fall hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2009


What a beautiful way to end the major hiking/climbing season. Phenomenal views of the Pickets from the summit, especially Mt. Triumph. Blueberries are perfectly in season, no encounters with bears but did see signs of them. Camping at Thornton Lakes camp this time of year is COLD, but all in all, easy navigation and a great overnight.

My brother and I were going to the lake but decided we didn't want to drop elevation so we headed up the ridge only to find this cool peak.

We couldn't see a thing when we did it, but I've always heard it was beautiful. Thanks for showing us.

When our plan to climb Triumph tanked due to a surprise thunderstorm and a change in the forecast calling for more, a side trip to Trapper Peak made the hike out much more enjoyable. The views are steller and it allowed us to get a good look at the NE ridge of Triumph for next time. We overdosed on blueberries along the ridge!
