Just got back from a couple of hikes in the Olympics, which is not near the city but has rejuvenated my interest in local hikes. We did a trail at Tiger Mountain last year. Check out “Take a Hike Seattle” book, which lists a bunch of hikes within 2 hours of the city.

Rattlesnake Ridge is one that we often take out-of-town friends to. Last week, my husband and I went up Mt. Pilchuck – on a clear day, there are plenty opportunities for amazing views. Too bad we mostly just saw fog. The hike was still fun and beautiful, though. Three miles each way, some incline, but nothing crazy.

i really love my “Hikes within 60 miles of Seattle” book. it gives directions, descriptions of hike, elevation throughout hike and some pics. it’s separated by area too, so if you’re feeling like only doing stuff on 1-90, then there’s a whole section dedicated to 1-90 hikes. i usually refer to the book first, then internet it in case things have changed due to weather. i usually refer to the take-a-hike lady from seattle times:
have fun on your hiking adventures!
