Experience the wilderness and majestic landscape in the heart of the North Cascades!

 

The North Cascades National Park Day Tour promises to “Re-Wild” Your Spirit! with its incredible jagged mountain peaks, expansive glacially-carved valleys, endless temperate rainforest, old-growth trees, turquoise-colored lakes and life-sustaining rivers.

Have your camera ready!  On the 78 mi drive along the North Cascades Scenic Highway, our expert local park guide, Stephanie, will make these stops for you to enjoy breathtaking scenery:

  • Wild & Scenic Skagit River
  • North Cascades National Park Visitor Center
  • Gorge Creek Falls
  • Ross Lake Lookout
  • Diablo Lake Lookout
  • a couple Stephanie’s favorite locations

In addition, enjoy a 3-4 mi easy-moderate hike in the old-growth forest or the Diablo Lake afternoon 2-hr boat tour, July 1 – September 26 (except Tuesdays & Wednesdays.  Reservations required at an additional cost).

Note: Summer temperatures can soar into the 90s, increasing the possibility of heat stroke and forest fires.

 

Please be advised that there are inherent risks (such as accidents, rock/snow slides, wildlife collisions, fires, etc) when travelling on the only road leading into the Park through the North Cascade Mountains.  Road blockages can take several hours to clear thus affecting access into the Park or the return.  I advise bringing extra food and beverages and having flexibility in your travel schedule to allow for such unforeseen circumstances which could potentially entail an overnight stay.
