Backcountry Travel & Overnight Trips
Almost 93% of North Cascades National Park Service Complex is designated as the Stephen Mather Wilderness and the rugged terrain has limited access. Topography prohibits accessible development of the 360 miles of backcountry trails and 136 designated backcountry campsites. However, some campsites and areas may be accessible with help.
