Take This Gorgeous Fall Foliage Road Trip To See Washington Like Never Before.

Leavenworth is absolutely breathtaking in the fall.

We’re pretty enamored with summer here in Washington… that is, until fall arrives and we remember how gorgeous our state is in October. The sun is still shining, but the air is crisp and the leaves are changing colors. This is truly the most beautiful time of year to take a road trip.

You’ll find colorful fall foliage in every corner of our state. But there’s nothing quite like the way the scenic North Cascade Loop looks right now. Follow it to get your fill of fall hues, and try to do it this month or in early November. These roads get dicey (and sometimes close down) when it snows

The trip begins in the beautiful Skagit Valley.

From Burlington, head east on Highway 20 toward Sedro-Woolley.

Stop at the North Cascades National Park and take in the beauty of the changing colors.

Depending on when you go, you’ll see touches of orange and gold or a full eruption of fall colors on the trees.

Next, spend your afternoon exploring Winthrop.

This charming mountain town is especially stunning in the fall. If you have time for a short hike in the Methow Valley, you’ll love what you see.
