Just curious, where would you say is the least travelled, least trailed area of the Cascades now and historically?Is there any real un-touched wilderness. There must be some remote valley out there with no trails. I was thinking near Glacier Peak or north of hw 20 area.

I doubt confluence of the Lost River and Hurricane Creek in the Paysaten sees many visitors.

I'm thinking it's either Mount Si or Wallace Falls.

If you want to get away from people, I suggest a girdle circumnavigation of the Pickets at the 4000' level. I doubt it has ever been done.

I did a nice, fairly easy 5 day trip in the ONP and didn't see anyone once I got off the trail.    Pretty easy to lose the herd if solitude is the real goal, but not if a lake is the destination. I love looking into trail-less valleys from trail-less ridges.

There have been mucho more people in the Pickets than in the Rapid Peak / Pocket Peak area of the Cascades.

Less visited does not necessarily mean more remote...  off the radar perhaps..

I'd say the most remote place is the Pickets..  McMillan Cirque then Luna Cirque..

Somebody posted a TR from … I think it was called the cougar traverse, or something like that?  Only person who had ever done it.

It's pretty easy to get around in though.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

The most remote has got to be some dense brush-filled valley in the North Cascades with no attraction of a lake or summit along it's route.
