The Sullivan Lake Trail Is The Most Underrated Fall Hike in Washington

Autumn is a beautiful season for hiking in the Pacific Northwest, and Washington is full of breathtaking trails that show off its fall foliage. But while many head to the Cascades or Mount Rainier National Park to hike, one of the best fall trails is located in Eastern Washington… way east, as a matter of fact. If you’ve never explored Sullivan Lake, make this the autumn you do.
