Experience the North Cascades

The North Cascades boast some of the best wild land recreation in the Pacific Northwest — if not the world.

Things to do

Scenic drives, hiking, camping and cross-country skiing are just a few of the great things to do in the North Cascades.

Where to go

Craggy mountain peaks, lush river valleys, arid shrub steppe and everything in between — the North Cascades have it all.

When to go

Each season brings its own set of things to do in the North Cascades. While summer offers spectacular hiking and camping, many flock to the North Cascades for winter sports like downhill and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Spring offers waterfalls, and fall has spectacular vistas bursting with color.

 

 

  • Some of the most important climate and energy achievements of the last eight years—including many that were Wilderness Society priorities—will be on the chopping block the moment President-elect Trump settles into the Oval Office. It will be more important than ever to stand up and let our lawmakers know what is important to us.

  • Thank you to the tens of thousands of you who responded to our requests to sign your name to a letter urging the administration to take this step. This is your victory!

  • Trump has picked a leading climate denier, Myron Ebell, to lead the transition team at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Ebell is also said to be in contention to head the agency itself. On the campaign trail, Trump said he may "cut" the EPA, but giving Ebell any authority over it may be just as bad.
