White Pass Village Inn is right in the heart of 3 beautiful National Forests.
Watch for wildlife, hike, take a quiet walk, or drive to an open vista. From the Inn at White Pass heading West, a 15 minute highway drive puts you at the SE corner of Mt. Rainier National Park. Forest Service roads from there offer quick access to treasures in the park such as Ohanapecosh, Grove of the Patriarchs, Sunrise, and Paradise. Also to the West are Mt. Adams & Mt. St. Helens. Both are within reach as a nice day trip to access the remote and historical areas. Stop by the Randle, WA ranger station for more information and to purchase your permit (it is on your way). To the East, a short jaunt puts you at a PCT trail head suitable for both hikers on foot and equestrians.
Access the Mt. Adams area by taking FR23, an hour and a half away from the Village Inn. Check with a local ranger station for road status.
