4 Essential Hikes to Experience the PNW in a Hurry



The Pacific Northwest gets a lot of love on Instagram. I gotta say, I didn’t get it until I went myself last summer. Trust me – the Insta-fame is well deserved.

Countless trails snaking through pristine alpine wilderness, turquoise blue lakes, and a coastline to die for… It’s really that gorgeous. Perhaps the most incredible thing about the PNW is its diversity of landscapes. One moment you’re standing on a fog-covered granite peak, and the next you’re underground, trying to make your way through a pitch-black lava cave.
