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.
