After hiking this trail I can see why this is one of the most popular trails in the park. First things first, if you can, get there early as the limited amount of parking can and will fill up. The road to get there is...More
North Cascades is a wilderness park, mainly for back country hikers/climbers/campers. We are older and more mobility challenged, but there are still things to do. The Cascades Pass Road (accessible off Highway 20 in Marblemount) offers a stunning, unparalleled view from your car. Be aware...More
On our cross country motorcycle trip we rode over this pass. The view is breathtaking and the cascading falls were endless. This is a drive that should be on your bucket list. Try not to drive through the pass to quick. Travel safe...
This review is really about the hike before the hike. We were at the park in mid-June so the Cascade Pass trail was still snow-covered. Park staff recommended we drive up Cascade River Rd to where the road was gated and then hike the road...More
Well worth the long drive into the deep forest. The road is mostly paved until the last 8 miles are gravel turning into a narrow winding road, took an hour to drive it. We did it in a small sedan car but an SUV would...More
Just the drive to the Cascade Pass trail head is worthwhile due to the mountain scenery. The hike to the pass is pretty steep and there will be snowfields to cross most of the year but it is well worth the effort. There's a rock...More
It's definitely not one of the most intense hiking of the area but surely one of the most spectacular! you can enjoy a forest landscape that gradually turns into a more bare one as you keep rising up. At the top the view is priceless...More
The drive up to the Cascade pass can be pretty scary, as it's about ½ an hour on gravel roads. They are very steep, sometimes one lane, slippery, windy and narrow, along with numerous potholes. Make sure you have a good car to get up...More
Drive up the Cascade River road into the less traveled both literally and figuratively. The Cascade Pass trail-head is a little over 20 miles from the intersection in Marblemount, and it can get pretty steep, windy, and narrow at times. Don't let the road dissuade...More
There are no streams to cross but there were some small snow fields. (In August) We both used trekking poles to help with slipping, wear good boots, too! I don't think June would be good, too much snow. August was good but... More
There are no streams to cross but there were some small snow fields. (In August) We both used trekking poles to help with slipping, wear good boots, too! I don't think June would be good, too much snow. August was good but warm. Used a lot of water & sunscreen.
We're both teachers, too, one retired & one still working.
