These two adjacent areas contain majestic ice-covered mountain peaks and canyons. Ross Lake Recreation Area actually is an L-shaped strip of land that separates the northern and southern portions of North Cascades. There are more than 300 glaciers in North Cascades alone. In addition, rushing rivers and brilliant green glacial lakes add to the breathtaking vistas. Many of the park’s peaks are over 8,000 feet and the highest is 9,127-foot Mount Shuksan. These tower above the valley where the North Cascades Highway runs, taking you into this pristine wilderness of unimaginable beauty. This eTrail explains in detail how to tour the park. In addition to a park map the details include driving tours, outdoor recreation, accommodations, campgrounds, dining, and more.
