On Saturday, April 17, all U.S. national parks will waive their entrance fees in celebration of Earth Day and the start of National park Week (April 17-25). So whether you’re a hiking newbie or seasoned backpacker, there's no better way to celebrate America’s Best Idea than by getting outside and exploring our national parks.


Here at Rumpl, we’re proud of our roots on the West Coast and the national parks that call this region home. From Olympic National Park to Yosemite, the national parks in the west represent the best natural beauty our country has to offer. That’s why we wanted to celebrate the outdoor playgrounds in our backyard by putting together a list of the best west coast national parks you don’t want to miss.

Starting at the top of the Northwest is Olympic National Park. Home to hundreds of miles of roads and trails, this expansive wilderness has it all.
