Washington’s Most Refreshing Hike Will Lead You Straight To A Beautiful Swimming Hole

If you’re the type of person who would rather exercise in the great outdoors than inside a gym and swim in a lake or a river than an enclosed pool, you can appreciate a good hiking trail that offers a bit of both. The Lake Serene Trail is a challenging and exhilarating hike, but it comes with a beautiful reward: The chance to cool off with a swim in a gorgeous lake.
