Section I of the PCT, the second section in Washington state, runs 99 miles from Highway 12 near White Pass to I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass. The first half of this section is protected by two wilderness areas and Mt. Ranier National Forest so it is gorgeous with great views, but the second half is at a lower elevation and is one of the most clear-cut areas in the West, according to the official PCT guide book.
Along the way this section of the PCT passes Naches, WA; Deer Lake; Sand Lake; Buesch Lake; Cowlitz Pass; Snow Lake; Bumping River and Fish Lake; Anderson Lake; Dewey Lake; Highway 410 at Chinook Pass; Sheep Lake; Sourdough Gap; Blue Bell Pass; Scout Pass; Barnard Saddle; Hayden Pass; Martinson Gap; Louisiana Saddle; Rods Gap; Windy Gap; road 784; Tacoma Pass; Sheets Pass; Stampede Pass Road 54, junction to Lizard Lake; Dandy Pass; Stirrup Creek; Twilight Lake; Mirror Lake; Olallie Creek; Lodge Lake; Beaver Lake; and Highway 906.
