The 140-Mile Scenic Drive In Washington You Will Want To Take As Soon As You Can

The North Cascades Scenic Highway is one of the most iconic stretches of our beautiful state. Spanning about 140 miles, it covers all sorts of terrain, from rural farmland to historic Western towns to some of the most breathtaking overlooks on the planet. And while you might not have time to cover the entire 140 miles (although you certainly should at some point), you should consider planning a road trip that way soon — the highway tends to close at the first signs of winter.

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/

Have you been to the North Cascades lately? There’s still plenty of time to go this year, but the beautiful weather will only last so long.
