3 Scenic Washington Road Trips to Take With Your Ford

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this is the perfect opportunity to take a scenic road trip, alone or with your significant other! Whether your road trip takes you up mountains, through valleys or out west to meet the Pacific Ocean, your Ford can take you there. Get the map out and bookmark a few of our favorite scenic Washington road trips.

Olympic Peninsula Loop

Kicking off and ending in Olympia, this nearly 330-mile drive circles both the Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park. While you could easily zip around the loop and knock it out in one day, you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not building in a few stops. Take some time to appreciate the Olympic Mountains, the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean and the tranquility of the many rivers and lakes you’ll happen upon on your road trip. The Olympic Peninsula is known for its variety of eco-systems, offering an opportunity to see much of West Washington.

Swiftwater Corridor

If it’s history you’re after, the Swiftwater Corridor snakes through historic boom towns, logging camps and old mills. Pitstops in Roslyn, Ce Elum and Ellensburg should be added to the list. For a unique stop, be sure to visit the 7,400 acre national park reserve, the Ginko Petrified Forest .

North Cascades Highway

Considering that we’re in the dead of Winter and the North Cascades are especially harsh and bring excessive snow, it may be best to bookmark this trip for later in the year. Covering 400 miles, the North Cascades Highway is part of the Cascade Loop. There is no shortage of breathtaking sites on this ride, you’ll see rock spires, waterfalls, vistas and hanging valleys. You’re also bound to see plenty of wildlife if you have some time to get out and explore. Etching out two to four days for this loop is recommended.
