Wilderness activities abound in Washington! Nicknamed The Evergreen State, hikers will find plenty of tree-lined nature trails in this Pacific Northwest paradise. Reach the summit of adventures in both the Cascade Range and the Olympic Mountains. Both the Olympics and the Cascades offer countless places for outdoor activities, whether you’re interested in hardcore climbing, mountain biking, or hiking. When the snow falls, Washington’s mountains offer everything from black-diamond runs for skiing savants to bunny hills for beginning boarders. Taking into account the Pacific Coast of Washington and the state’s extensive tidal waterways and island perimeters, there are more than 3,000 miles of coastline here. And with an amazing number of glacier-fed rivers, freshwater lakes and scenic reservoirs, this place is a paradise for people who love water and all things you can do on it, in it and near it. You can even go whale watching in the San Juan islands. Explore the nature splendor!
