Kangaroo Temple is a granite peak on Kangaroo Ridge, which is a three mile long north-south trending massif in the North Cascades immediately east of Washington Pass. Kangaroo Temple is situated at the south end of Kangaroo Ridge, at the headwaters for the Twisp River and Cedar Creek. Several other peaks on the massif keep with the kangaroo theme with names like Big Kangaroo, Wallaby Peak, and Joey. Kangaroo Temple is not visible to travelers at Washington Pass. But a hike to Kangaroo Pass will get you a view of this granite tower.
