Explore A New Side Of Blue Lake Trail, A Special North Cascades Hike In Washington

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that there is absolutely no shortage of beautiful hikes in Washington. There are so many, in fact, that it’s really hard to narrow it down to even, say, a “Top 20”. What we can do, though, is look at individual trails every now and again to really appreciate them, and this particular trail is no different. It’s a moderately easy, 4.6-mile trek through part of the North Cascades National Park. Believe us when we say it’s worth every single mile, because it’s absolutely beyond-words incredible!
