Scenic drives, hiking, camping and cross-country skiing are just a few of the great things to do in the North Cascades.
Craggy mountain peaks, lush river valleys, arid shrub steppe and everything in between — the North Cascades have it all.
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.

The Legacy Roads and Trails Remediation Program (LRT) was established by Congress in 2008 to address the budgetary needs of the U.S. Forest Service's massive road and trail system, which suffers due to chronic underfunding and rising fire-fighting costs. It delivers funds to address critical road issues in real time, enabling the Forest Service to efficiently design and implement projects appropriate for the specific area and local needs.
