The Sauk-Suiattle people called the mountain "Dakobed"; today it is known as Glacier Peak. This most remote of Washington's volcanoes dominates the landscape of the Central Cascades, from Stevens Pass north to Cascade Pass and Lake Chelan. Dakobed Country contains three wilderness areas; Glacier Peak, Henry M Jackson, and Wild Sky. The Pacific Crest Trail traverses it, as does the famed mountaineering route, the Ptarmigan Traverse. East, it includes the rugged Entiat Mountains, west the Monte Christo Peaks. North, it extends into some of the wildest areas of the North Cascades.
