5 trails I want to hike in 2018
Central Cascades - Stevens Pass
13 miles, roundtrip
Lord, I hope that this meadow isn't actually filled with spiders. I'm more looking forward to seeing some majestic glaciers, cute marmots, and fields of wildflowers.
Eastern WA - Selkirk Range
19 miles, roundtrip
Down to the South Salmo River and right back up again to Snowy Top Pass, I'm excited for old growth greenery and scrambling up rocks (one of my favorite things).
Olympic National Park
10.6 miles, roundtrip
Any hike in the Olympic Peninsula is magical so it's not like I need an excuse to visit again. The light, the wildlife, the beauty of walking through A RAINFOREST...let's freaking go.
Mount Rainier National Park
93 miles, roundtrip
This hike has been on my mind for a hot minute. You're allowed up to 2 weeks to hike the entire loop and that almost doesn't seem like enough time to really soak in the absolute majesty of Western Washington. I would love to solo hike this and spend my time painting and eating Snickers bars. The dream.
What hikes are you planning for 2018?
