If you drive the North Cascades Highway, you should definitely stop at Washington Pass and take a little time to walk out to the spectacular viewpoint. You are surrounded by high craggy mountains, most notably Liberty Bell.

Words cannot begin to describe the amazing vistas of the surrounding mountains; especially Liberty Bell Peak. Of course the clear blue skies on the day we travelled through just added to our wonderful experience. A great deal of time was spent to make this attraction...More

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.

The entire experience of this trail loop was a wonder and an inspiration. The design of the trail is impeccable, down to the bent steel railing. The experience is enhanced by two boards with poems by William Stafford. Rocks, trees, views, peaks are so present...More
