Mountains to Sound Greenway, [1] Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass in the state of Washington is unique in the Interstate Highway system in the US, in that it is a designated National Scenic Byway. The Mountains To Sound Greenway Trust has acted to protect the route of I-90 from Seattle to Thorp, WA, which is the portion of I-90 through the Cascade Mountain Range. Many scenic and unique places in the Cascades can be quickly and easily accessed from the Seattle area via the Mountains to Sound Greenway and I-90. For example, Snoqualmie Pass is only a one hour drive from downtown Seattle (in good weather).

Understand

The Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust website has good background information on the area and many online publications [2].

Prepare

Get in

I-90 is the main corridor through the Greenway. One hour's drive is all it takes to get from Seattle to Snoqualmie Pass, but you can easily spend several days exploring and hiking.

Go/Walk/Drive/...

Mountaineers Books has published "55 Hikes Around Snoqualmie Pass," [3] an excellent hiking reference. MTSG has an online Geology Tour Guide available at their website, too [4].
