We're searching for a replacement hike for our Wonderland Trail trip. So far we have narrowed the search down to 3 candidates:
- A section of the PCT in Northern California (JMT maybe)
- Olympic Coast
- Boundary Trail
1 is challenged for us logistically at such short notice. 2 sounds fun – but too similar to our WCT experience last year and probably not "epic" enough. 🙂
3 is an interesting candidate. Its way out in the wilderness, with Grizzlies and Gray Wolves, and best of all – mostly snow free (so we believe). Sounds entertaining…
Length: 98.0 miles
Difficulty: Very Difficult
Overall rating: 10
Season: This trail is accessible July-September.
Boundary Trail is located in Okanogan National Forest.
Time to study the maps and see if we can make a loop out of it. With 6-7 hrs drive from Seattle, travel time will whittle our trail time down a little.
