The Best Hikes in the Cascades

When people ask about the most beautiful places I've ever been, my mind often wanders to where I spent most of my life growing up: Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, it wanders to the places I have been hiking in the PNW, to the best hikes in the Cascades.

When you find yourself in the Seattle area, I encourage/beg you to of course experience the typical tourist attractions in Seattle (Space Needle, the Experience Music Project Museum, etc.) and then head out to the Cascade Mountain Range.

Drive East on I90 with your running shoes and enjoy my favorite three hikes:

Twin Falls

The easiest hike of the three, Twin Falls has two cascading waterfalls, a rolling river and ancient, huge cedar trees in store for you.

Poo Poo Point

This steep hike is well worth the effort because the summit offers incredible views of Mount Rainier. You also might see a few hang gliders if you're lucky!

Start your hike from the trailhead that begins from the new parking lot, and be prepared to sweat…

Snow Lake

After about two miles of uphill switchbacks, you're rewarded with the most incredible view of Snow Lake. I recommend making the mile hike back down afterwards to enjoy a picnic by the water. This would make for an incredible solo hike… and some pretty solid Instagram photos 🙂
