Notes

Sourdough Mountain Trail is a very tough hike in North Cascades National Park, but rewards with exceptionally stunning scenery. This hike is kid friendly but is likely too much for those hiking with young kids. With nearly 5,000 feet of elevation gain in just over 5 miles makes for a grueling hike!. The Sourdough Mountain Trail in North Cascades National Park near Seattle does just that. The payoff for such a challenging hike is panaramic views of craggy peaks, glistening glaciers and being free in the lower 48's most remote National Park.

History

The summit of Sourdough Mountain has a fire lookout that was built in 1933.
