    Diablo Lake Overlook image
    This overlook along Hwy 20 provides great views of the lake behind Diablo dam as well as of the forested mountains surrounding it. The viewpoint is several hundred feet above the lake and there are great views of the emerald water below. (The color is created by the glacial silt in the water.) There are interpretive signs along the walkway that describe the geology and history of the area. There are restrooms at the far end of the parking lot. A must-see stop if you are touring the highway through the North Cascades. See more..

    The walk to the monument was very beautiful and full of sites. Our picnic spot was a large rock at the USGS marker and very nice. The incline to the marker was easy but we did not venture to C. See more..

    Cape Horn Lookout image
    One of the earlier stops on WA-14 (the views are great from the Washington side), just be aware that the pullout doesn't have much warning and parking is limited. However, the view is worth it so do make the stop. See more..
  7. 4.5 Emmons Vista Overlook (14 reviews)
    - Beautiful view of Emmons Glacier
    Emmons Vista Overlook image
    There is not a good view of Mt. Rainier from the Sunrise Visitor Center unless you take this short hike starting just off the parking lot. Easy walk will reward you with a great view of the glacier and mountain. The trail does go on for more views, but the first one is adequate if you just want to see the glacier. See more..

    Heybrook Lookout image
    Easily accessible hike right off HWY 2. Steep climb-900 feet in 1 mile-brings you to lookout. Good views, not great. We saw plenty of families on this hike. Overall, this was a very good hike. See more..
  10. 5.0 Maple Hollow Park (1 review)
    - Beautiful private park with rocky beach access and trails to explore
    Spent 1-2 hours Points of Interest & Landmarks • Lookouts • Scenic Walking Areas
    The park has a small parking area with picnic site, primitive restrooms, no water. The trails can be steep but there is an ADA accessible route to the upper lookout area that has a view of lower Puget Sound and Mt Rainier area. There is a trail to the beach that is about 1/2 mile hike from the parking area. Near the beach the trail has a set of stairs and there are stone steps down to the beach. There are 3 campsites near the beach access which are intended for the water trail users. There is no running water at the park. This park isn't heavily used and can provide solitude. The beach area is nice and there is a large variety of wildlife. Seals frequent the water along the beach. See more..
  11. 4.0 Overlook Point Park (1 review)
    - Tiny park, but offers a spectacular view!
    Spent < 1 hour Points of Interest & Landmarks • Lookouts • Observation Decks & Towers
    It's a tiny park with a couple of picnic tables to play chess and a swing, possibly some playground equipment. I went for the view. You can see Mt. Ranier and the Capital Building from this great view. See more..
