The PCT crosses Hwy 20 at Rainy Pass.  There is an outhouse at the pullout (on North side of road - not visible from the road) and an flat spot the PCT hikers use as dispersed camping right below.  No water, but a safe place.  I spent the night there in 2019 :-)

If you are considering camping at nearly 4,900' in the North Cascades in early June be prepared for some "weather."  The passes were scheduled to open this year on May 10th.  There was more snow than usual later in the season.  It might be difficult to pull off the road and/or to find a place to pitch a tent that is not still covered with snow.  Here is what they are calling for this weekend at Washington Pass:

Ooh, thanks for the link! I am not planning to wild camp if at all possible, but this is super helpful nonetheless.

Hi all, just a belated note that Colonial Creek does have a hiker/biker site!
