The range is famous for its massive snow-capped volcanoes. Easy routes taking you to them are not hard to find. Some of the major peaks are Mount Baker, Mount Rainier (the highest at 14,410 feet), Mount St. Helens, Mount Hood and Crater Lake. Chinook Pass is a pass through the Cascade Range in Washington. It’s a 5,430-foot-high pass, about five miles east of the Cayuse Pass summit and makes for one incredible strenuous but stunning bike ride.
