Accessibility at Washington Pass Overlook
Just 400 feet (250 meters) long this level, paved trail passes through sub-alpine forest to a spectacular view of Liberty Bell Mountain and Early Winters Spires. This viewpoint is an excellent place to see the golden colored larch trees in autumn. The trail continues, looping back to the parking area, with stairs and steep grades that may limit travel for some. Accessible parking and restrooms, information station, benches, picnic tables and interpretive signs add to the pleasure of this breathtaking stop. A Northwest Forest Pass is required for parking at this location. Snow covers this area until early-July, contact the Methow Valley Ranger Station at 509-996-4000 for current trail conditions.
