West Side Loop

Explore the charming towns along the White Pass Scenic Byway, including Morton, Mineral and more. This loop also extends into Mount Rainier, bringing history and nature together. Explore the White Pass Scenic Byway through this wonderful three-hour drive.

The summer and fall months are especially gorgeous along this stretch that passes through the heart of timber country, along the beautiful Mineral Lake with Mount Rainier in the background, and on into the national park named for the mountain.

This three-hour drive is a great introduction to the rural reaches of East Lewis County for those spending a couple days in the area, and it's also a very achievable roadtrip within just a few hours' drive from Seattle or Portland!
