An overgrown and hard-to-follow trail in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Cascade Creek offers intrepid hikers backdoor access to Navaho Peak, and the possibility of loops in and all around the Teanaway area. 

Eight miles in on the Ingalls Creek trail is the turnoff for the Cascade Creek trail. This may be hard to spot since the trail hasn't seen maintenance in years. Be sure to have a map for navigating this. 

Crossing Ingalls Creek requires a ford, which can be quite dangerous in the spring, so be prepared. Once past, it's an overgrown climb up the Cascade Creek drainage to the more open talus fields and finally the pass just below Navaho Peak. To reach the peak, head left from the pass and follow the boot path to the summit.
