North Cascades Scenic Highway


The 140-mile North Cascades Scenic Highway
is one of those roads people line up for—
literally. In the spring when the road reopens,
there’s a line of cars waiting to take in the
craggy peaks and turquoise lakes of the state’s
northernmost Cascade Mountain pass.
Note the word reopens? This pass typically
closes from late November to early May so
check with the State Department of
Transportation before hitting the road
