Washington Cascades Offer Outstanding Recreational Year-Round Activities

The Washington Cascades, part of the Cascade Mountain Range which extends from British Columbia to California, offer hundreds of miles of hiking, snow-shoeing, skiing and cross-country skiing trails; many ski resorts; and countless opportunities for camping, backpacking and mountain climbing in one of the world's most beautiful and accessible mountain ranges.

In Washington, this lengthy range of forested mountains is roughly divided into three different regions, each offering its own unique and outstanding natural features. The three regions are briefly described below. For more detail, follow the links:
