Chinook Pass Scenic Byway

It’s both an all-American road and all-American byway. This road should not be missed! Head east on the road to find hotter, dryer weather as you wind your way past awesome panoramic views of Mt. Rainier. Any way you drive up into our spectacular valley, the drive will be outstanding for scenery and wildlife viewing.

Travel the glacier-fed White River from Enumclaw, over Chinook and Cayuse Passes, to the fertile valleys of Naches in central Washington. Spectacular views of Mt. Rainier, dense forests, towering peaks, rocky ridges, and river canyons dominate this journey. Pass by the unique basalt flows of the Columbia plateau, lush sub-alpine meadows, and waterfalls.”
