    There are lots of great things waiting for you in Cascade National Park. Here are some of the highlights.


    Mild conditions are great for walking, and you'll see brightly coloured fungi everywhere.


    Conditions are dry and perfect for mountain biking through the forests.


    The wettest time of the year and a great opportunity to see the rainforest at its best, with fungi and fruits on show.
