Be sure to walk out to the overlook, and the continue walking on the trail that leaves from the overlook area, to see some even better views of the mountain/valley off to the east. This was a beautiful area and so glad we stopped!

I have visited this park twice already and it remained beautiful despite the fires that ravaged the Evergreen trees. Be prepared for the sudden changes in temperature as you reached the Overlook as it could drop to the low 30's. My husband and I always...More

I came to this overlook after finishing Maple pass loop (it is quite close to that area). Just turn off the road, walk a few yards and you will be treated to nice view of the mountains.

This overlook provides beautiful views and has a short path that provides different views of the mountains. Good place to get out, stretch your legs, and admire the Cascades.

This is a must top while going through the park. It gives such views without having to hike. Definitely a photo opportunity.

One of the best view points in the Cascades without hiking! This overlook is right on the highway so easy for everyone to get to. Make sure to stop and enjoy. We took so many pictures here!

This and Diablo Lake Overlook are the two most scenic stops in the NCNP. This is well worth the 60 mile drive from Marblemount with panoramic views of the valley and mountains. It is a very short walk to the lookout points.
