The North Fork Bridge Creek Trail is one of the most scenic trails in the North Cascades National Park.
Winding its way up the valley towards North Fork Meadows you will see fantastic views of Goode Mountain, the highest peak in the North Cascades National Park at 9,220 feet, rising over 6,000 feet from its footings, and almost 7,000 feet from the bottom of Bridge creek valley.
The often brushy trail is 7 miles long and gains about 1,700 feet from start to end. To get there hike 10 miles south on the Pacific Crest Trail from Highway 20 .
You’ll ford Grizzly Creek and then break out into the open with views like this one. To purchase prints of these images (as well as other stunning images of the North Cascades, visit our Photo Gallery.
Following the creek up towards the head of the valley into North Fork Meadows, Mount Logan looms above.
The lush green swards are filled with flowers, as well as hordes of flies in July and early August and often there are bears foraging along your way.
No matter what the weather, you’ll get wet pushing through the brush.
Seven miles from the junction, the North Fork Trail ends at the base of a fantastic waterfall with Mount Logan as a spectacular back drop.
Camping is available at Grizzly Creek and Walker Park.
Or you can camp at the North Fork Camp, located at the trail Junction of the PCT and North Fork Trail.

I’m going to have to get the thesaurus out and find another word for STUNNING. Love these. Beyond amazing!
Wow Jessica, Thank you!
You’re welcome. I’m just glad I stumbled across your site a couple months ago. Get to “see” so many beautiful places.
Just beautiful. The green is so refreshing!
Yes, it is incredibly green around here…lots of rain!
These are superb photos, and the park looks amazing. I just wish I was over there as it would be one place I would visit. Bit wary of the bears though…
The bears are more surprised to see me than I am to see them, I am always scrambling for the camera, and they often escape, but these two I caught!
What a stunning place .. Love those bears 😄
Me too! Very cuddly!
