YOUR CHANCE TO Edit

Cascade Mountains are very popular among USA climbers and mountain tourists. There are a huge variety of hiking routes (approximately 150 only in Lassen Volcanic National Park).
The highest peaks of this mountain system are located in Mount Rainier National Park. Mount Rainier is in the list of North America 14 000-feet Peaks.

DESCRIPTION Edit

The Cascade Range is best known for its tall volcanoes and deep evergreen forests. There are a lot of routes for all mountain activities - mountaineering, rock-climbing and ice-climbing as well as trekking and back-country skiing.
While the North Cascades contain an extremely rugged cluster of jagged peaks, it is the long line of snowy volcanic cones running from Mount Baker south to Lassen Peak t
hat dominate the range for its entire length.
The Cascade Range consists of several parts - the Western Cascade Range, the High Cascade Range, the North Cascade Range and the Canadian Cascade Range (or Cascade Mountains). This mountain system includes both non-volcanic mountains, such as the North Cascades, and the notable volcanoes of the High Cascades. The small part of the system in British Columbia is called the Canadian Cascades or Cascade Mountains. The latter term is also sometimes used by Washington residents to refer to the Washington section of the Cascades in addition to North Cascades, the more usual American term, as in North Cascades National Park.
