Mount Adams Viewpoint


Turning the corner into Randle, stately Mount Adams makes its appearance, rising high above the nearer foothills. This is the most impressive view of Mount Adams along the byway, the easternmost of the region’s three volcanoes. Access to the Mount Adams Wilderness Area is along the byway in Randle on FS Road 23 or from Packwood on FS Road 21. Mount Adams is a prominent landmark on the District, with the summit at 12,276 feet elevation. The Mount Adams Wilderness area features a great diversity of habitats and features, from old growth to second growth forest, wetland areas, low and high elevation meadows, glaciers, and low and high elevation lakes. It was discovered by Lewis and Clark in 1805, and also has a rich history of Native Americans in the area who composed many legends about this mountain and the many surrounding peaks in the Central Cascades. The area is well known for recreation including hiking, backpacking, mountain climbing, snowmobiling and equestrian sports. It is off the beaten track and is considered a remote area, relatively undisturbed by overuse.
