You just have to see this place to believe it. For those that rate this less than excellent, I'd really like to travel wherever you go because this is darn near the top of my list of scenic places. You do have to get out of thecae and walk a couple of minutes to see the best views.

This is a nice spot to stop and take in some beautiful mountain views. There is a short paved trail that takes you to a few vistas.

This pull off is an exceptional way to see the rough Cascades without hiking. Make sure you have a camera. There is ample parking and bathrooms that are really clean. There is a clearly marked path that most people can enjoy and get views of our highest mountains. You will see Liberty Bell Peak and other views of the Cascades.... More

If you only stop one time when driving hwy 20, make sure it is here! This stop has a great parking area and very nice, easy trail up to the top where you will see some of the best views to be had anywhere in the U.S. I have been a Washington resident my entire life, and have been around... More

It is a must do in North Cascades. We stayed at Marblemount and from there it is a 1 hr drive. The trail is very easy and short but gives spectacular views of all the peaks on the eastern side of the park.

For anyone traveling the North Cascades Loop, the most jaw-dropping views are at the Washington Pass Overlook. It appears that there used to be a very nice facility but it is now closed and only an ordinary toilet replaced it. There wasn;t a sign so we had to find our way, but the trail leads away from the parking lot... More

We stopped at this Overlook on our journey from Winthropp to Seattle along the North Cascades Highway.It was breath taking view from the Look Out with Highway 20 Underneath and the Mountains over looking. There are a few Picnic Tables to rest on the base of the trail which takes you to the post. There are no sign boards indicating... More

There are some excellent viewpoints from the overlook. There are also plenty of places to pull over on the North Cascades Hwy at Washington Pass. We drove through the pass a few times on our trip and the views never get old.

It was really lovely, with many different vistas! The only thing hanging on the information board was a warning about how not to leave any valuables in your vehicles because there have been a lot of thefts reported. There was a picnic table available.

With the highway 20 underneath and majestic cascades spanning across your line of view, you feel the goose bumps at first sight.
