If You Only Have Time For One Hike In Washington This Year, Make It Staircase Rapids

While we have awhile to wait before Washington’s hiking season officially starts (sorry), if you’re like most outdoorsy types, you’re already planning your 2020 hikes — and perhaps you’re even taking a few nature walks in our less snowy areas. But if you only have time for one good hike this year, we highly recommend checking out the Staircase Rapids Loop in Olympic National Park. Not only is it great for any skill level, it’s absolutely beautiful.

We hope every Washingtonian gets to go out and explore the great outdoors this year. If you’re short on time, these hikes are all under three miles long.
