What are the best hiking trails in Washington during spring?
One of the best springtime hikes in Washington is the long trek around Lake Chelan. The full hike is 12 miles, but despite the length it’s not particularly challenging, and the views make every step worth it. Springtime is also the best season for waterfalls, as the snowmelt really gets them going. The trail to Wallace Falls, near Gold Bar, is a quiet oasis that shows off a stunning cascade. One popular trek, Hamilton Mountain in the Columbia Gorge, is a 7. mile loop that shows off stunning wildflowers and waterfalls, along with remarkable views. That’s our pick for best spring hike in Washington.
What are the best spring day trips in Washington?
In the spring, Washington comes alive! Visit Leavenworth for a festival (they have so many, beginning in April), or head to the Yakima Valley for winery events that welcome in the season. If you prefer to keep to yourself, head to Second Beach in Olympic National Park. It’s busy in the summer, but on a beautiful spring day you might have this cove all to yourself.
Does Washington have any natural wonders?
The Evergreen State is unlike any other place on Earth. The Hoh Rainforest is one of the oldest ecosystems on the planet, and it’s full of remarkable beauty and diverse flora and fauna. Mount Rainier may get all the attention in its own National Park, but take the Grove of the Patriarchs Trail to see more of the stunning environment that makes the park so special. In Eastern Washington, Palouse Falls State Park is a true natural wonder – the waterfall will take your breath away! Of course, no mention of Washington natural wonders is complete without talking about the Columbia River Gorge, on the Oregon Border. There’s no more beautiful place in the entire Pacific Northwest.
