Explore Two Breathtaking Backcountry Lakes On This Exhilarating Washington Hike

With Washingtonians being encouraged to explore our own backyards this year, it comes as no surprise that local hikers have been discovering new nature trails and checking bucket list hikes off their lists left and right. If you’ve hit a trail or two this summer and you’re up for a challenge before the season ends, check out the enchanting Anderson Lake and Watson Lake Trail. As the name implies, you’ll see two gorgeous backcountry lakes on your journey.
