Hiking Luna Peak

The tallest peak in the Picket Range of the North Cascades, this
peak features some gorgeous mountain views and glacier travel, but requires route-finding and navigation skills to tackle.

Approach via the Big Beaver trail to Luna Camp, 10 miles from the trailhead. From there you'll begin your uphill climb to the summit. This is a two day trip, at minimum.
