Indian Heaven Wilderness

Fall is here and with it the rain, wind and wild weather has arrived. But don’t let it stop you from exploring! Grab your raincoat, rain-fly and waterproof hiking boots and get muddy on some the area’s best trails.Indian Heaven2

For my first big hike this fall I headed to the Indian Heaven Wilderness in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. A protected area just west of Mt. Adams in Washington, the Indian Heaven Wilderness is a beautiful landscape of meadows and forested trails with small lakes and ponds dotting the region. With miles of interweaving trails including a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail, this Cascade hiking ground is alive with rich reds, oranges and yellows this season.

  1. This is an area I hoped to explore before the year was out. Sadly, it’s a little far to drive for a rainy hike (I can do that in the Snoqualmie Valley) but I wonder if this would be a good place to go cross country skiing once the snows fall?

    1. The Indian Heaven Wilderness would be a great place to cross-country ski in the winter. Plenty of snow I’m sure and some beautiful, single track routes throughout the region.
