If You Have Only 1 Day

Since this is one of the most rugged wilderness areas in the United States, any attempt to see the park in a day must be made with the understanding that you're not going to see it all. For most folks with limited time, the choice is a summer drive across the park on Wash. State Rte. 20 (North Cascades Hwy.), and perhaps a hike to Pyramid Lake or on another of the more accessible trails.
