Did someone say ROAD TRIP?

The US Hwy. 12 Scenic Byway is a tremendous journey from Chehalis to Naches. Not far off the byway lie some of the state's most beloved volcanoes, wild backcountry, historic locales, lakes, waterfalls...for starters. Choose from eight side trips that can be completed in a day - or plan to stay overnight for a more leisurely experience. Find detailed descriptions of the points of interest along these routes and download your itinerary to take with you!
