The Sierra Cascades Bicycle Route runs roughly parallel to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail along the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. This route is characterized by volcanoes, long stretches of forested countryside, busy towns, deserts, orchards and everything in between.

Section 1
Section 1 begins at the Canadian/U.S. border in Sumas, Washington. Along the entire route you'll cross 20 passes and 25 Pacific Crest Trail crossings, though some of these are unmarked. Within the first 100 miles you'll begin climbing over the Cascades to the drier side of the mountains. Due to heavy snow, State Highway 20 through the North Cascades National Park is usually only open between late April and late November. From Sedro-Woolley to Yakima this route shares the same routing with our Northern Tier and Washington Parks routes. On the east side you'll be traveling through orchard country, where the roads will get busier during harvest times. West of Yakima the route heads to Mt. Rainier National Park. A spur is shown to the Paradise Visitor Center within the Park. Expect heavy traffic in and near the Park from June through August. An optional 28.5-mile spur into Bellingham is also included for train, plane and bus services.
