This is a great viewpoint to see the towering peaks in North Cascades NP. The parking lot is right beside the highway and the viewpoint itself is a short walk. Check this off your list on your visit to the national park.

Best Views in the park. It's a short walk from the parking lot. Worth the stop. You'll spend at least 30 min here.

This is a fantastic view in North Cascades Park from the highway. You can walk the trail just enjoy the scenery from the parking lot.

The entire experience of this trail loop was a wonder and an inspiration. The design of the trail is impeccable, down to the bent steel railing. The experience is enhanced by two boards with poems by William Stafford. Rocks, trees, views, peaks are so present...More

If you are driving the North Cascades Highway make sure you go as far as Mt. Washington. You won't be disappointed in the views. Not many places where you see a site like this.

This stop was not only beautiful (albeit cold) but there was poetry and a trail that took you to different lookout points.

This is a must do when driving Route 20. A very short walk to great views in several directions. The most striking views are of Liberty Bell Mountain and Early Winter Spires.
