Default Multi day trip suggestions

Thanks in advance, I am looking for a few suggestions for a week long trip I am trying to plan for this up coming summer. Two years ago we did the WCT and last year we competed the Stein, I am thinking about returning to the Lizzie lake alpine area and just peak bag as much as possible but I would like to get some other suggestions.

I have thought of the fools gold route but I think I want something enjoyable rather then a bushwack fest, and I am not looking for something as crazy as the Harrison to Whistler trip. My friends and I don't have any rope skills so I would like to avoid glaciers so something like the Cheam range traverse may be to technical.

What trip would you do if you had a week and a half off in late August?

South Powell Divide, you'll have to get a bit creative to stretch it out to 1.5 weeks

Nootka. It won't take you a week and a half but it's probably my favourite backpacking trip of all time.

Salal Creek to Athenly Pass. More info on Leigh's blog.

Few peaks to bag along the way as well. A week and a half would be overkill for this trip but if you include few summits you could probably spend 5 days there.

I think I have seen a TR for the South Powell Divide and forgot what it was called I will be looking into that for sure. Thanks for all the other great suggestions I will be googling them all tonight, if anyone else has more suggestions keep them coming.

If you are looking for a multi-day trail trip you can't beat the North Cascades in Washington. In the past few years I've done the Copper Ridge/Whatcom Pass route, PCT Rainy Pass to Manning and PCT Stevens Pass to Lake Chelan. Each was great, in different ways.

Lots of other options in the Pasayten for more mellow roaming.
