This is a great viewpoint to see the towering peaks in North Cascades NP. The parking lot is right beside the highway and the viewpoint itself is a short walk. Check this off your list on your visit to the national park.

Best Views in the park. It's a short walk from the parking lot. Worth the stop. You'll spend at least 30 min here.

This is a fantastic view in North Cascades Park from the highway. You can walk the trail just enjoy the scenery from the parking lot.

If you are driving the North Cascades Highway make sure you go as far as Mt. Washington. You won't be disappointed in the views. Not many places where you see a site like this.
