You will be amazed at the variety and diversity of this region. And for a taste of Yakima Valley's bounty, look no further than the small farms you see along the road.

The Yakima Valley is blessed with excellent weather and a wonderful location for mountain activities. A 40-minute drive from Yakima will bring you to the foot of two spectacular mountain passes, White Pass and Chinook Pass. These routes offer spectacular mountain vistas, and they are best traveled between April and October. From Yakima, travel west on Highway 12 to Naches. Continue on and take the Chinook Pass Highway (Washington 410). If it is hiking you are interested in, this is the place to do it. There are numerous trailheads in this area for hikers of all abilities.

We want to provide today's families with the tools and resources to live healthy, happy lives and access to the best medical care available when they need it.
