The hike to Cutthroat Pass is an easy one, both to get to and to hike. The trail leaves from the parking area at the north side of Rainy Pass, along the North Cascades Highway. It’s about 5 miles or so to the top. Along the way there are streams, meadows and higher up, camps.
I made the jaunt up to capture some fall colors. We slept on slabs at the top of the pass.
