What a view

Views from Hwy 20 on liberty bell and other peaks around was one of the greatest surprises in North Cascades NP, the scenery is just amazing. A must see.

This overlook was a high point of the North Cascades parkway, both literally and figuratively. There are two viewpoints that are easy to access that give a magnificent panorama of the entire valley, mountain peaks, and road below. There is a trail that goes on beyond those, but there was a very narrow section winding around a rock without a... More

Beautiful view, probably the best in the park, although technically this pass is outside the east side of the park on the way to Chelan. (overlooking Diablo Lake is probably a close second).

This is something you cannot miss if you travel the Cascade Loop. The Cascades are stunning with over 300 glaciers.

Traveling to Washington Pass Overlook is well worth the trip on US20. It was easily accessible by car, and was just a short walk to the overlooks. The walk, while quick, is partially paved, and partial rocks. The views are fabulous!!

Driving west on Washington highway 20, views of the mountain peaks and valleys is awesome. The stop at the park viewpoint blows the drive views into non compete realm. If you have the time and its a sunny day, do the viewpoint stop. A short drive off the highway with washrooms and a neat paved walking trail that makes a... More

easily accessible overlook just off US 20. We could not drive all the way to the parking lot since part of the road was closed; had to park earlier and walk a bit on the road, then take a small trail over packed ice to reach the overlook. Overall walking distance ~ 1.5 miles roundtrip the views of the road... More

If you are driving the North Cascades Highway, there really is no reason whatsoever to bypass this. You can park in a very nearby lot festooned with restroom facilities, then after about a block's walk on a paved, handicap-accessible trail, you will behold some of the most breathtaking scenery in what you've no doubt found to be one of the...

The rest area and the trail was very nice. Great view from the trail and nicely built. Felt secure the whole time.

If you are visiting the North Cascades, Washington Pass is a MUST SEE! The overlook is easily accessible, and the views are spectacular.
