What to do: With three or four days you can hit the highlights on an out-and-back hike from Kinuseo Falls to Monkman Lake. You’ll pass the little-known Cascades, eight perfect waterfalls in succession, and spend a day exploring the Tarns, a sprawling alpine meadow with epic views. But the ultimate Monkman experience is to hike the entire trail to Hobi’s Cabin on the Herrick River, a seven-day trek that requires a helicopter or riverboat shuttle.
