The Cascade Mountains


The Cascade Mountains offer mile upon mile of dense forested wilderness, traversed by a dense web of beautiful trails and spectacular vistas. The most popular access point is Mount Rainier, set in its own national park ninety miles southeast of Seattle, while the haunting scenery around volcanic Mount St Helens compels visitors internationally. Further north, Hwy-20, the high mountain road that crosses the Cascades, is by far the most spectacular route to eastern Washington, traversing the snowcapped wonder of North Cascades National Park.
