You just read that first line and are probably thinking, “There are hundreds of miles of trails in Washington, how am I supposed to choose from so many options?!” To be honest, I have never been on a PNW hike that was disappointing. But, if you want some that are tested by Berty and I (and are super beautiful) we’ve created this list of 20 hikes in the PNW that we recommend! We also suggest cross-checking reviews on sites like All Trails and WA State Parks Website. They can give you more in-depth information about season conditions and other useful information!
