A 69-mile paved linear route that passes over the North Cascade Mountain Range, Tumwater Canyon, and the Wenatchee Mountains. The Stevens Pass Scenic Byway traverses waterfalls and peaks as it winds through the Cascades of west-central Washington. The two-lane road is paved and has frequent turnouts. Traffic can be heavy in the summer since the byway is also used as an all-purpose route between Seattle and Wenatchee. Special attractions: Lake Wenatchee, Stevens Pass Ski Area, Leavenworth, fishing, hiking, camping, backpacking, swimming, railroad and transportation history, sightseeing, and horseback riding. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
