This southern pass (Hwy 2) of the Cascade Loop is often overshadowed by the North Cascade Highway (Hwy 20). But don't underestimate this beautiful route. While this route doesn't quite have the rugged Alpine feel of Hwy 20, it makes up for it with many pleasant and quaint stops. Deception Falls above Skykomish offers beautiful views of this waterfall with easy hiking trails to take full advantage of the scenery. Leavenworth is the gingerbread-like Bavarian themed town with no shortage of food, hotels, and activities. Much of the ride follows the banks of the Skykomish River providing lots of turns and views of the river. The gap in the trees made the river provides frequent glimpses of the majestic mountains in front of you as the river snakes back and forth. No trip to the Cascades is complete without making this climb over Stevens Pass and continuing on to experience the charm of Leavenworth.
