the world's most spectacular roads

Tyee Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.029m (6,656ft) above the sea level, located in Chelan County, in the U.S. state of Washington. The peak is most notable for the fire lookout atop its summit. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Washington.

The road to the summit, located within the Wenatchee National Forest, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Some ridge markers as well as a small communications structure are also found nearby on the summit ridge.

4x4 with high clearance vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a rough deteriorating 4WD road pretty steep. Wet conditions may make for tough driving along the muddy road. There are noteworthy views from the summit towards the lower valleys and nearby ridges. A L-4 cab fire lookout was constructed at the summit during 1931. That structure was replaced by another L-4 cab during the 1950s.
