Here’s Why You Should Plan An Adventure At Washington’s Most Underrated Park

Washingtonians flock to Mt. Rainier and Olympic National Park, and for good reason — they’re national treasures. But there’s another national park located in Northern Washington that, despite being one of the most visually stunning places on the planet, draws less than 35,000 visitors each year. To put that in perspective, the average attendance at a Seahawks home game is 68,976.

Need a few compelling reasons to visit this underrated gem? Here they are.

If you’re planning a visit to this pristine park this year, we recommend waiting until June or July — there are still a couple of winter road closures, including State Route 20 at the Ross Dam Trailhead. In the meantime, we recommend getting into shape with one of our beautiful spring hikes.
