Cascade Lake Road is a dirt road that once was an access point to the now-defunct and gated Cascade Power Station. It parallels Cascade Lake and offers views of several waterfalls and the impressive Cascade Lake Dam. The road surface is flat, with the occasional smooth rock coming through. It's no problem for any vehicle. In wet conditions, AWD or 4WD is recommended. No camping or hiking access exists, so the road serves purely as a drive-through. Cascade Lake Road is a great addition to a visit to the nearby DuPont State Recreation Forest.

The road is open to the public year-round, but the property it runs through is currently (01/2024) in litigation to determine whether it will remain public or be closed. Check this one out because it may not be there in the future.
