Washington Road Trips Chinook Scenic Byway

Washington State has some beautiful areas to do a road trip. And the Chinook Scenic Byway is no exception. The drive takes you through some beautiful vistas and towns that seem like postcards. This road trip is only available for a short time as winter arrives and the road is not safe for travel.

The byway starts in Enumclaw and passes through Enumclaw River Canyon into Rainier National Park s astonishing, extensive panorama. On to Crystal Mountain, continuing via Enumclaw River Canyon/ A Panoramic Viewpoint to the destination known as Chinook Pass, the highest point and namesake of the byway, there is a bridge where you can cross the trail of the Pacific Crest.


Keep driving, and you will find campsites and hiking trails. RV and tent campers can stay at the Lodgepole Campground, Little Naches Campground, the smaller Pleasant Valley Campground or the musingly called   Hells Crossing Campground. Be aware that you probably won’t get much (or any) cell service along the way, so plan accordingly. Tiny towns begin popping up again as you descend from the Cascades before the byway officially ends in Naches.

The Washington Trails Association lists 87 hikes to choose from, including guided snowshoes and classic walks, leisurely hikes, and even adventures with summits twice as high as Mount Everest. You’ll have the opportunity to take in some of the world’s most alluring mountains, all passing wildlife, grizzly bears, owls, and other animals. Unique routes include the Edgar Rock spires and part of an aptly named Norse Peak.


You can keep going, but that will be our other post on Yakima.:)
