Mountain Loop HWY

 

The Mountain Loop Highway is a 55 mile route through the heart of the North Cascades offering  not only a scenic drive but opportunities for hiking, camping, and picnicking.  My first memories of the Mountain Loop are of blue tarp camping with my family in the campgrounds like Verlot and Gold Basin.  My siblings and I would head up on hikes like Heather Lake with my mom as we grew older. I am now trying to explore the longer harder hikes, especially the ones I saw from a distance as I hiked the PCT in 2013.

Find out current conditions (especially because the road closes in the winter) and as always, practice Leave No Trace.  Pretty Please.
