Getting Here and Around

When the North Cascades Highway is open, Winthrop can be reached via that scenic route; it takes about 3 hours, 45 minutes from Seattle. The rest of the year, it will take about an extra hour via Stevens Pass (Hwy. 2) or Snoqualmie Pass (I–90 then Hwy. 970 to Hwy. 2) to Wenatchee then north via Hwys. 97, 153, and 20. From Spokane, Winthrop is about 3½ hours west via Hwy. 2, then Hwys. 174, 17, 97, 153, and 20.
