8 Scenic Washington Hiking Trails That Are Unbelievably Underrated

Summer has finally arrived, and that means our beautiful hiking trails are all open for business (and mostly snow-free). If you’re a hiker, you’ve probably heard of our more popular trails, like Rattlesnake Ledge and Naches Peak. But there are also plenty of hiking spots that don’t always get the credit they deserve. These are a few of them.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

These hikes are all amazing, but some of them can be pretty challenging. If you’re more of a novice, check out our list of beautiful hikes for mere mortals.
