Directions:

Primary access to North Cascades National Park and Ross Lake National Recreation Area is from the State Route 20 (SR 20) corridor. Due to avalanche danger, the Washington State Department of Transportation typically closes the roadway between Ross Dam Trailhead and Lone Fir Campground from November to April. The Silver-Skagit Road to Hozomeen provides the only road access to the Ross Lake shoreline. This 37 mile (60 km) gravel road connects with B.C. Highway 1 (Exit 168) near Hope, British Columbia. Hiker and climber access to the northern Picket Range and Mount Shuksan is available from State Route 542 (SR 542) east of Bellingham and the Baker Lake Road northwest of Concrete. Passenger ferry and plane access to Stehekin is available from Chelan on U.S. Route 97. Hiker access to Stehekin begins at the Cascade Pass trailhead on the gravel Cascade River Road, the southbound Pacific Crest Trail from State Route 20 near the Rainy Pass picnic area, and from trailheads on the Twisp River Road.
