Hiking is a great way to escape the drudgery of everyday life, and it’s easy to forget the challenges of maintaining a well-equipped backpack while exploring nature.
Here are five state parks with hiking trails that are great for a family of four.
Bureau of Land Management: Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State Mount Rainier, the highest peak in the world, is a national park in Washington State, and has been a state park since 1889.
Mount Rainy is a popular place to explore for both hiking and biking, and a popular hiking destination with locals and tourists alike.
The park’s hiking trails are often closed during the winter and are a great place to start.
The best way to explore Mount Rainey is by hiking, and many popular trails have multiple options for hiking.
There are also several trails for biking, but these trails are usually very steep.
State parks have trails for the entire family.
Some trails are designated for only families and include the Mount Rainiers’ “Grandmother Trail”, which is open to all families.
Other trails have a specific area for older children.
If you’re new to the state parks, it’s worth checking out the National Park Service’s website and getting an idea of the types of trails you can explore.
Hiking trails in Washington can be quite steep, and there are several options for families.
The Mount Rainoulas “Grandfather Trail” is open only to children ages 6-11.
If your child is older, he or she can try one of the trails that have “bagged” sections, where there are ropes and padding to help keep your child out of the trail.
Another great option is the Mount Washington Trail, which is not as steep as Mount Rainicorns.
There is also a trail called the “High Mountain Trail”, where you can walk along the base of the mountain and enjoy views of the surrounding area.
In general, the best trails for families are those with lots of shade and elevation, and trails that can be used both by walking and biking.
Mount Rainiers “Grandparent Trail” (included with the park’s Mount Washington trail) is a good option for families ages 6 and up.
It is open from July through November, and the trail has a variety of shade options for each family.
