The White Pass Scenic Byway is a snippet of US-12 in Washington state, between I-5 and the town of Naches. It wends its way through the Cascades, running mostly through the valley of the Cowlitz River. It ascends to White Pass, at elevation 4,500, before descending down the east side of the mountains. Near Naches, the byway ends at Washington State Route 410, the Chinook Scenic Byway. Drivers on the byway can experience the beautiful scenery of the Cascades, including views of two of the most well-known mountains in Washington, Mount Rainier and Mt. St. Helens, both volcanoes. In recognition of the unparalleled sights US-12 has to offer, it has been recognized as a National Scenic Byway by the Federal Highway Administration. This honor is carried by only 184 highways in the entire country.
Entrances to the White Pass Scenic Byway are marked with a unique circular marker depicting a snow-capped mountain rising over an evergreen forest. In the foreground stands a stately elk. To help you relive your travels along this celebrated byway, we’ve recreated these signs and made them available for sale. Every detail has been precisely duplicated from photos of real-life signs, from the fonts to the colors to the artwork shown in the center of the sign. It’s just like the real thing in every way—except for the legal consequences of taking the real thing home with you.
Our White Pass Scenic Byway signs are printed on heavy steel circular blanks. They come in your choice of 12, 16, 24, or 36-inch diameter. We’ve also included two pre-drilled mounting holes to make installation easier. This sign is non-reflective, and stands up well to outdoor display as well as indoor. If you’d like one in a size not listed, contact Jake to get started customizing this sign to your exact needs.
