North Cascades National Park is a U.S. National Park located in the state of Washington. The park is the largest of the three National Park Service units that comprise the North Cascades National Park Service Complex. In 1971, the park had 318 glaciers the most of any US park outside Alaska. Several national wilderness areas and British Columbia parkland adjoin the National Park. The park features rugged mountain peaks. Although one gravel road open to the public enters the park, most automobile traffic in the region travels on the North Cascades Highway, which passes through the Ross Lake National Recreation Area. The nearest large town on the west side of the park is Sedro-Woolley, Washington, while Winthrop lies to the east. Chelan is located at the southeastern end of Lake Chelan.
