#123: Visiting North Cascade’s Hidden Gem: Stehekin

A trip to Stehekin, tucked away in a valley in the North Cascades National Park complex, feels like a visit to an island. But instead of being completely surrounded by water, this remote village is hemmed in by spectacular alpine backcountry, making it impossible for cars or trucks to drive into or out of town.


Once frequented only by Native Americans on their trek through the mountains, this peaceful valley has been the site of sparse but consistent settlement since the late 19th century. With the National Park Service protecting the pristine area surrounding the few parcels of private land, the area feels like a land time forgot.


In this episode, we talk about our recent visit to Stehekin, what we did, where we stayed, and a bit of history about this unique area. We also provide information about other overnight accommodations in the area, transportation options, and a tip about where to find what we think are the best cinnamon rolls in the state of Washington. Join us for all this and more!
