I had two full days to get from Port Townsend to Leavenworth and, on the advice of other Tripadivsor members, took Highway 20 - and what a great choice. Fall must be the absolute best time to do this: we had the roads almost to...More

We were luckily traveling east bound. But the west bound traffic was backed up at least 4 miles. In speaking with a USFS volunteer, he said that was normal for a Sunday. Overall, we hiked lots on the highway 20 side. But the highway 2...More

We only did the Northern section which was manageable in a day. Approaching from the west, we passed Rockport State Park and Marblemount without stopping. (We did stop at the home/family-style Marblemount Diner for dinner on the way back. It filled up rather quickly.) By...More

If starting in Yakima go west on Chinook Pass- the views are the best that direction. Also, there are some great places to eat along the way. Prior to coming east on White Pass make sure to swing in to Packwood (slightly out of the...More

You really need a lifetime to do the Cascade Loop properly. That is, take every little side road excursion, including fire roads until your car can't cut it anymore or there's no possible way of turning around. You need to get out of your car...More

Just the views are breathtaking! We did not have time to explore - we just pulled off at some scenic overlooks and when something really grabbed us. It was well worth the drive though. Gorgeous!

Hi, we will be visiting Seattle during July 4th weekend and would like to tour the whole Cascade Loop with one night stay in town somewhere. Will be traveling with our kids, 9 and 13, and would like a recommendation on where to spend the night and hikes we should definitely do with you kids. Where should we start since we'll head to Portland after as well?

Hi Hollie. If you are starting in Seattle, head toward Everett and take the exit toward Hwy 2 and Stevens Pass--this will have you traveling the Loop counter-clockwise, the route that yields the best views. I would recommend... More

HI.We will be travelling the Cascade Loop in June, heading from Vancouver. I had already booked hotels at Winthrop and Everett before reading several times that we should start the loop at the Everett end. We plan on travelling White Rock (south of Vancouver) to Winthrop on day 1, Winthrop to Everett on day 2, Everett across to Whitby Islands & drive back to Vancouver on Day 3. Is this doable and should I try and re-book our hotels (one of which is no cancellation, but may be able to make a day early.) This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do the loop as we are a retired couple from Australia & probably won't be able to afford to come to the USA again. I would appreciate any advice.
