Hiker report to North Cascades National Park rangers re the Holden Village to Agnes Creek (Stehekin Rd.)portion:
Patchy snow after leaving Holden, route finding needed to cross both Cloudy and Suiattle passes, solid snow at, and above Upper Lyman Lake, solid snow in the basin above Hemlock Camp, then snow free(!) down to Agnes Creek and the Stehekin Rd. at High Bridge. Then from High Bridge north – northeast to Bridge Creek and out the last 12 miles to Hwy 20, snowfree, cleared and logged out, easy going, with lovely wildflowers right now. Numerous bears active, so PLEASE hang food!
