12 Scenic Trails To Explore In Washington, One For Each Month Of The Year

It’s always hiking season here in Washington if you know where to look. While some of our trails are only accessible when the weather is pleasant, there are plenty of hikes you can enjoy all winter long.

If you’ve decided to do more hiking in the year ahead, congratulations! The Evergreen State is the perfect place to do so. To help inspire you, we’ve created a list of potential trails for you to try, one for each month of the year. Remember to leave the trail better than you found it, be respectful of other hikers and of nature, and read up on each trail before you try it—some of these will be best enjoyed if you bring someone more experienced along. Enjoy!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
