WTA is a nonprofit that depends on donations from hikers like you

To help fund resources like this hiking guide you're on right now, we're working to raise $150,000 on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving. If everyone who visited this site this weekend gave just $5, we would hit our fundraising goal. A donation of any size helps us create the resources you depend on.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $5.

Hiking Quick Creek Camp

Quick Creek Camp can be found at the south end of Waptus Lake, where you'll revel in stunning views of the craggy Cascades, including the unmistakeable Bear's Breast Mountain.

WTA worked here in 2018 and 2016!
