North Cascades National Park

North Cascades National Park showcases the jagged peaks, sprawling forests and imposing glaciers of Washington state’s North Cascades Range. The vast majority of the park is designated as the Stephen Mather Wilderness, giving North Cascades a raw and undeveloped feel. North Cascades is three hours drive time from Seattle. Hikers and backpackers love North Cascades for its pristine, relatively uncrowded trails, and rugged backcountry.
