Washington’s hiking trails are opening and ready for outdoor adventurers again, and for that we are thankful. However, for those of us who have been cooped up inside taking rather lengthy hiking breaks, it’s best to enjoy a few easy, gentle trails before attempting to tackle anything lengthy or treacherous.

The Snoqualmie region’s Lake Ingalls Trail is both of those things, and many Washingtonians will never get a chance to experience its rugged natural beauty. But thanks to the team at Nature Calls Backpacking, now we all can.

If you ever get the chance to hike the Lake Ingalls Trail, prepare for an incredibly beautiful and exhilarating day. If you’re not able to do so (or you’d just rather not), this video on the Nature Calls Backpacking YouTube channel truly is the next best thing.
