North Cascades National Park isn’t particularly well known, let alone the Maple Pass Loop. Heck, we almost passed this hike up in favor of other, shorter trails inside of North Cascades.
What a mistake that would have been.
The Maple Pass Loop Trail ended up being one of our family’s most favorite hikes of all-time, and it remains as Pete’s #1 hike in all his 43 years of traveling.

U.S. National Parks are famous for their incredible scenery. Some of the most iconic views, like Tunnel View can be seen from a parking lot. However, you’d be missing out if you didn’t lace up your hiking boots and leave the pavement and boardwalks to see these gorgeous vistas!
