My favorite time of the year is here!

When I was little, my favorite season was summer. But as I grew up, moved to Washington State, and summer break wasn’t a thing anymore, I fell in love with fall. I now enjoy chilly days, cozy sweaters, an excuse to always have a hot beverage in hand, and most importantly, I love the stunning fall foliage all around.

Hiking during this season can be a little tricky due to cloud coverage, rain storms, muddy trails, and sometimes snow. But pick any day with a promising weather forecast and head out to one of these beautiful trails to enjoy this wonderful season.

Here are some of the best fall hikes in Washington State.
