Mt. Goode

Washington > Northwest Region > Hwy 20 & N Casc… > N Cascades
Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure at Newhalem Crags March 1st to mid-July Details

Description

The highest peak located in the North Cascades National Park, and the fourth highest non volcanic peak in WA.

Located in the heart of the North Cascades, Goode is not visible from any road. Despite being considered one of the most classic routes in Washington, you will most likely have the whole mountain to yourself.

Getting There

Most people access from Rainy Pass on Hwy 20 or from Stehekin, WA. From Rainy Pass, hike south on the PCT along Bridge Creek, then over a pass towards Goode. This will likely not be a one day trip due to the length. From Stehekin, take the shuttle to High Bridge and then the Goode Ridge trail or PCT north, depending on the route.
