The Glacier Peak
Wilderness, created by Congress in the 1964 Wilderness Legislation, is
located within portions of Chelan, Snohomish, and Skagit Counties in the
northern Cascade Mountains of Washington State. The area, 576,900 acres
in size, is characterized by heavily forested stream courses,
steep-sided valleys, and dramatic glacier crowded peaks. Forest
vegetation is comprised of true firs, spruce, and hemlock, as well as
stands of pine on its eastern slopes. Various species of wildlife
inhabit the area and include deer, elk, bear, mountain goat, cougar,
marten, and lynx. The primary fishery is cutthroat trout, however, other
species do exist there as well.
Recreation opportunities, as
well as solitude abound with more than 450 miles of trail and many
places where one can enjoy cross-country travel. Because of the
popularity of the area, there have been some restrictions put in place
in order to protect its unique wilderness character.
Trails Illustrated maps our new Washington Cascades titles are both
highly durable and environmentally friendly. Each map is printed in the
United States, at a certified green printer, using low V.O.C. inks on
waterproof, tear-resistant material.
