Description

Tucked away off the North Cascades Highway, look for the sign to Washington Pass Observation Point to take the short drive to the parking lot. Take a half hour or so to stroll around the paved trails and get near-360 views of one of the most iconic spots along the North Cascades Highway (closed during the winter months).

Short Walk: Short, paved fully accessible path to a stunning view of the North Cascade Highway and Liberty Bell Mountain. Restrooms available.

Family Friendly: Easy access trail - good for strollers and little ones. View points are mostly lined with railings.
