Enchantment Permit Area 2019

Leavenworth, WA

The Enchantment Permit Area within the Alpine Lakes Wilderness is the poster child of ‘being loved to death.’ The promise of solitude, dramatic high peaks, crystal clear alpine lakes, and destination climbing opportunities have drawn recreational visitors of all interests and backgrounds in high concentrations to this relatively small pocket of Wilderness. Impacts include litter, crowding, braided and undesignated trails, illegal campfires, campsite impacts, and human waste impacts.
