Pacific West Region

 
Half Dome in Yosemite National Park

The National Parks Service defines the Pacific West region as encompassing the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, Nevada and Hawaii and the territories of Guam and American Samoa. This large region is dominated by the Pacific Ocean and some of North America’s most lush natural beauty including towering trees, majestic mountains, temperate rainforests, arid desert, volcanic islands and coral reefs—all of which are hallmarks of a visit to a Pacific West National Park as well as other national designations. Such diverse natural elements make for exciting vacation possibilities!

Crater Lake in Oregon

Visit Oregon’s Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the U.S.; Washington’s Mount Rainier is a famous peak in the Cascade Mountain range, popular for climbers and home to the Emmon Glacier, the largest in the continental U.S.; marvel at North America’s tallest waterfall, Yosemite Falls, as well as Giant Sequoia groves; and Haleakala on Maui is home to the greatest number of endangered species. And those are just some of the 16 unique National Parks in this region.

Climbers on Emmons Glacier, Mt Rainier

Additional possibilities can include visits to any of the 45+ National Monuments, Historical Sites, Recreation Areas and other national designations like the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, which travels through Idaho, Oregon and Washington as well as eight Midwestern Region states; Nevada’s Lake Mead National Recreation Area bursting with outdoor activities; and, Cabrillo National Monument commemorating Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European to set foot on the West Coast.
