On the PCT you stay at the base of Mt Adams. It’s a pretty nice section, but the summit is even better. Being centrally located in the Cascades you are rewarded with views of Mt Baker + Glacier Peak + Mt Rainier + Mt St Helens + Mt Hood + Mt Jefferson + 3 Sisters. Coming down the North Cleaver you get great views of Adams Glacier behind you and the seemingly tiny Goat Rocks ahead.
