PORTLAND, OR
Multnomah Falls Trail 

Living in Portland, Oregon, you’re a short drive away from so many amazing outdoor experiences: vistas, trails, rivers, and of course, waterfalls. The most famous waterfall in the area, Multnomah Falls, is only 35 miles away. It’s an epic view! There are trail options for everyone, whether you want to run up to the bridge for a picture or get much higher for a different vantage point. I love going there with friends and family when they come to town. The last time we went was with relatives from Southern California. It was pouring down rain in typical Columbia Gorge fashion, and we got soaked! They felt like they got the ultimate Pacific Northwest experience, so we were all happy. Worth it every time!

Multnonah Falls
Marymere Falls Trail

JOYCE, WA
Marymere Falls Trail

Marymere Falls on the northern coast of the Olympic Peninsula is at the top of my bucket list of places to visit in my home state. Even though I grew up in Washington, I have never made it out to see the falls and I’ve heard it’s beyond worth it. Although the trail is steep in some places (there’s even a rope section for the brave) it’s only 5-ish miles to the lookout. Marymere Falls gives the famous Oregon waterfalls a run for their money. I’ll definitely be bringing my family with me next time I am there!

PALOUSE, WA
Kamiak Butte Trail

Another trail that you won’t find on many lists is Kamiak Butte Trail. With views of rolling, pastoral farmland, dense forest, and spreads of wildflowers (in the summer) this trail is a must-visit if you’re in the Pullman, WA area. Others who have hiked the trail say you should head up counter-clockwisefor an easier hike and clock-wise for a steep, strenuous workout. Either way, the top of the trailhead opens up to incredible views of the Palouse Hills. I can’t wait to visit!

Kamiak Butte Trail
Lake 22 Trail

GRANITE FALLS, WA
Lake 22 Trail

Once the snow melts, I want to check out the popular Lake 22 Trail. A short drive from Seattle, Lake 22 featuresrainforested trails, boulder fields, an alpine lake, and epic views of Mount Pilchuck. What more could you want? Although this trail is open year-round, hikers warn that winter conditions (think avalanches, and icy trails) can make it difficult to navigate. Always remember to pack your Rumpl, check weather and trail reports, and use your best judgment before you head out.

CRATER LAKE, OR
Discovery Point Trail
 

The first time I saw pictures of Crater Lake I knew I needed to go see it for myself. I have visited twice and was lucky to have perfectly clear bluebird days both times I visited. The water is so clear and blue it seemed fake. There is easy access from Rim Drive to get good viewpoints of the lake. The visitors center has some amazing views as well. On my next visit, I would like to cycle around the whole crater via Rim Drive to see it from all angles. Pro tip: if you go midsummer there are a ton of mosquitos, so bring some good bug spray!

Discovery Point Trail Crater Lake
Cascade Canyon Trail Teton

GRAND TETON, WY
Cascade Canyon Trail

If you get a chance to visit Cascade Canyon Trail in Grand Teton National Park, you should take it. The more strenuous hike pays off with panoramic views of 200-foot waterfall Hidden Falls about 3 miles in and the hike starts at Grand Tetons second largest body of water- Jenny Lake. As you gain elevation, you’ll see The Cathedral Group: three peaks all over 10,000 ft. in elevation. Along the way, you’ll also spot fauna poking through the rocky enclaves and enjoy mountain and lake views throughout. Pack plenty of gear in case you want to continue on past the end of the trail to Lake Solitude.

LANDER, WY
Popo Agie Falls Trail

If you get a chance to visit Cascade Canyon Trail in Grand Teton National Park, you should take it. The more strenuous hike pays off with panoramic views of 200-foot waterfall Hidden Falls about 3 miles in and the hike starts at Grand Tetons second largest body of water- Jenny Lake.

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, MT
Avalanche Lake via Trail of the Cedars

One of the more iconic trails in Glacier, Avalanche Lake via Trail of the Cedars is a must-hike for anyone visiting the park. The last time I visited was in September 2015. It was my friend’s first time visiting Montana and she absolutely fell in love with the aqua colors of the lake and the serene mountain views. Although the hike starts on the steeper side, it’s rated as moderate and the viewpoints are bar-none. Depending on the time of year, you can see an incredibly diverse array of ecosystems and topography including waterfalls, snow, wildflowers, and wildlife. Pro Tip: Go in the early fall to avoid crowds and take in the peaceful tranquility that Montana wilderness has to offer. You’ll fall in love!

WENDELL, ID
Box Canyon Spring Trails

Box Canyon Spring Trails is on my list of places to visit once the pandemic is over. Located near Wendell, ID- other hikers say this is a great stop for an easier hike with swimming holes (if you don’t mind cold spring water) and views of the river. Those in the know say to pack a picnic and make a day out of the fresh air and gorgeous views, just make sure to pack your Stash Mat and watch out for stinging nettle and poison oak which is known to spring up in the area!

Four Dances Trail

YELLOWSTONE COUNTY, MT
Four Dances Trail

Growing up in Bozeman, MT- I found myself taking the beauty of the eastern part of the state for granted. Four Dances Trail in Yellowstone County definitely reminds me of the lesser-known beauty of Montana. A family-friendly, 1.5-mile loop near Billings, MT, Four Dances Trail has it all: views of The Beartooth Mountains, bluffs, and the winding riverbanks of the iconic Yellowstone River. If you’re looking for a truly unique stop in a beautiful state, look no further.
