Trail Description

The Cascade Crest Loop is remote, scenic and primitive and should be on everyone’s bucket list!

The trails along this loop include North Pyramid, Pyramids, South Pyramid Creek, Chimney Peak, Gordan Peak and Scar Mountain for a total of 29 miles and about 10k feet of climbing.

The loop also connects to the Crescent Mountain North trail on the Southeast side of the loop. You can also do a 7.5 mile out-and-back on Swamp Peak Trail which intersects the loop on the West side. Note the Swamp Peak Trail crosses into Wilderness at 3.65 or so where bikes are not allowed.

Bring lots of water and plan on a full day (or days) to finish this challenging and remote loop. Note that the Pyramids Trail is currently closed to bikes, and you will need to walk this short section. A re-route will be fixing a problem area on this trail and we will be working on addressing it in Spring of 2018. Once completed, the trail should be re-opened to bikes.

Hit up Horse Creek Lodge & Outfitters if you need a guide or a shuttle on this loop.
