Babyshoe Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.326m (4,350ft) above the sea level, located in the Cascade Range, in Washington, USA.
The road over the pass is gravel and sand. It’s called U.S. Forest Route 23 (FR 23). It’s not maintained in winter. The road opens up in snow free months of spring and summer. It is paved for most of its route but there is a 12 mile gravel stretch over the pass. Some sections of the road are rutted and dusty. 9% grades with loose gravel over nasty washboard make it tough to keep traction.
