Like classic rock, classic literature, and classic film, a classic hike should be a superb representation--in this case, of trails--capturing the full essence of our outdoors and outdoor experiences. It should be timeless--not replicated anywhere--and the experience should remain indelibly etched in our minds. Washington is a beautiful state with big mountains, big rivers, big lakes, a big coastline, big trees, big animals, and big tracts of public lands traversed by thousands of miles of trails--the ideal place to find classic hikes.
Come explore the 100 Classic Hikes of Washington with award winning author Craig Romano. Learn about the very best hikes in the state—short and long—day and overnight. From the misty wild Olympic Coast to the sun-kissed Blue Mountains, explore trails covering every facet of Washington’s incredible geographical diversity. What better way to get acquainted with our beautiful natural heritage than by taking a classic hike?
