Road reopens to Cascade Pass trailhead in N. Cascades

Here’s some good news for those who like to hike in the North Cascades. The road to Cascade Pass trailhead is now open again.

The road closed about 3 miles from the trailhead on Aug. 11 after a huge downpour washed out the road. The washout stranded many hikers on the other side. The park service helped those who were stranded by providing food and water. On Aug. 12, a temporary fix was in place and the hikers were able to drive out.

The fix of the road is still temporary, but it has been deemed sufficiently stable and approved by the park service. The parks staff is considering options for a permanent fix.

The trailhead is extremely popular. It offers access to Cascade Pass and Sahale Arm, as well as other hikes.
