9 Short And Sweet Washington Summer Hikes With Amazing Views

Hiking is a quintessential Washington experience, and our trails certainly shine their brightest in the summertime. However, that’s also when the hot sun shines its brightest, so if you don’t want to spend all day hiking, you’re not alone. These trails are all reasonably short, and they all happen to have fantastic payoffs in the form of stunning scenery.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

There’s nothing like enjoying a wonderful Washington hike. But if you’re just getting started, try one of these trails for mere mortals first.
