Get ready for a very special two-week adventure amid the snow-capped summits and wide-open spaces of Washington State’s North Cascades. This brand-new tour takes in Mount Rainer National Park, Mount St. Helens, Lake Chelan, and North Cascades National Park, with plenty of challenging climbs and thrilling descents.
Our ride will take us along the northern portions of Adventure Cycling’s Sierra Cascades route, which roughly parallels the Pacific Crest hiking trail. This scenery-packed tour includes volcanoes, alpine landscapes, rivers, waterfalls, agricultural land, the third deepest lake in the U.S., and two nights in Paradise.
Throw your gear in the van and enjoy this ride through the scented forests of the North Cascades free and unloaded.
