However, if you plan to explore the more remote areas of the nearby mountains in the Cascade Mountain Range, an SUV or a pickup truck with 4WD is better equipped to handle these rugged terrains. Keep in mind that access to many of the remote trails in the surrounding areas requires a 4WD vehicle with high clearance.
