Cashmere is surrounded by the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains. The Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area is about 10 miles to the West. The Peshastin Pinnacles is a historical climbing area located a few miles from town. Some of America's first technical climbing routes were established here by Fred Beckey and others.
The Devil's Gulch mountain bike trail is said to be the premier downhill ride in the state of Washington, and is located just south of town. Or take a stroll in Cashmere’s Cottage Avenue Historic District, featuring early 1990s-era Craftsman bungalow homes.
