The Highest Road In Washington Will Lead You On An Unforgettable Journey

If you feel at home behind the wheel, Washington is the perfect place for you. From the Hood Canal Loop to the backroads of the Palouse, our highways and byways offer incredible views that span miles.

But if you’re feeling daring and you’re not afraid of heights, check out Washington’s highest road, Hart’s Pass, in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. But you may want to wait for a warm and sunny day, because this road can get pretty treacherous.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/


Would you dare to drive down this extremely elevated single-lane gravel road? If not, perhaps one of Washington’s scenic byways would be a better choice for a Sunday drive.
