The first section is the steepest and then the line mellows out.  Follow the glacier all the way to the toe.  Once done follow a faint climbers trail to the lake below.  At the lake a a good trail is on the North side, follow this trail by Helene lake and back to the car.

Details

The Cascades are divided into 2 areas, which are the High Cascades and the North Cascades. The High Cascades are volcanos, where as the North Cascades are non-volcanic mountains. The snow is generally heavier than other areas of the country as it is effected by the warm southern winds, the high moisture, and the higher temperatures. Mt. Rainier is one of the most famous peaks in this range.

How to Get There

Go to California, and then head north. the cascades cover a lot of areas, all the way to canada!
