Lion Rock

Lion Rock Lookout offers breathtaking, scenic views of the Central Cascades and the Kittitas Valley.  Enjoy the beauty of Central Washington from this lookout featuring 360-degree views at an elevation of 6,360 feet.

The lookout is best enjoyed during the warm months due to beautiful Central Washington sunsets and thousands of blooming wildflowers.  As you drive up the mountain, you are treated to picturesque meadows of wildflowers including arnica, lupine, glacier lilies, paintbrush, and more.  Upon arrival at the top, you are greeted with stunning views of the mountain range and forest that stretches for miles. This is a perfect place for a picnic with the kids or taking the family on a drive.

If you prefer to rough it a bit, Lion Rock is also an excellent place for camping.  Set up camp, admire the gorgeous Central Washington sunset, and gaze into the night sky to see the bright stars.  Be sure to bring all of the necessary supplies as you will be in secluded sites, which are usually occupied by local wildlife.
