9 Washington Hiking Trails So Beautiful You’ll Forget You’re Exercising

You’ve probably heard that the best kind of exercise is the kind you’ll do consistently. But we believe the best kind of workout is the one that makes you forget you’re exercising entirely. And when you’re on these trails, you’ll be too focused on the beautiful views and the stunning scenery to realize you’re breaking a sweat.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
