One of the gretest day hikes in North America is the Boulder River trail. It's an 8.6 mile out and back hike through old growth rain forest. On one rainy day on this trail I saw at least a dozen separate waterfalls.

We have driven through various areas of the Mount Baker - Snoqualmie National Forest. Its very pretty, with forested lands, water ways, and of course Mount Baker. This time we drove through a section of the forest on our way to Leavenworth.

We enjoyed this drive through this beautiful forest on our visit to MOUNT SHUKSAN. We really enjoyed the picturesque Nooksack River which has three Forks and we had visited the South fork valley and it is really most beautiful and scenic.

We took 4 short hikes within the park. 1st Stop was Nooksack Falls. It's not far from parking but not a flat or easy navigation due to tree roots and rocks. Hard to get a good lol since it is fenced off for safety. Still...More

We enjoyed hiking along the Nooksack River and visiting Nooksack Falls. Although the forest is only a short drive from urban area, it seemed remote; we saw very few other hikers and there was not much traffic on the highway. The alpine hiking area in...More

If you're looking to escape Seattle for a day excursion, here's your place (although according to the USDA's website, it's the most visited national forest in the country!). It appears to be much less traveled by the city folks and only less than 1.5 hours...More
