Getting to Yakima Valley
  Yakima Valley Travel Tip

A loop tour to the Yakima Valley offers a look at the geographic and cultural diversity of the Valley as well as the spectacular mountain scenes that take you there.

Yakima is only 140 miles from Seattle, a pleasant two and one-half hour drive across the Cascade Range via Snoqualmie Pass on I-90. This route offers a look at Snoqualmie Falls and Roslyn, Washington, the location for the popular T.V. series "Northern Exposure". Continue traveling east to I-82. From there, the Yakima Valley is just 35 miles south.

White and Chinook Passes also offer a beautiful scenic drive from Western Washington. Although these routes offer spectacular mountain vistas, they are best traveled between April and October.

Chinook Pass (Washington Route 410), offers a breathtaking view of the 14,410 foot high Mount Rainier. You will enter Mount Rainier National Park, designated in 1899 as the nation's fifth national park, drawing more than 2 million visitors each year.

White Pass (U.S. Route 12) is another beautiful route to the Yakima Valley. Again, Mount Rainier is an attraction. A visitors' center located in Paradise offers a sense of Rainier's Nordic facilities in the winter and a number of summer activities that include the summer music festival series and fly fishing school.
