Nothing welcomes spring quite like the bloom of wildflowers.
Catch one of Mother Nature’s best performances and wander along the best-hidden
trails and pathways Washington has to offer.
This 2.5-mile round-trip hike takes you up about 890 feet
with incredible views of camas and avalanche lilies along the hillsides. The
perfect accompaniment to the wildflowers is the stunning view of the sound. You’ll
wander through marshland, valley, and up a steep elevation gain and earn that
view of the San Juan Islands.
Deception Pass State Park
Known as Washington’s most-visited state park, Deception
Pass features rugged cliffs, awe-inspiring sunsets, hidden waterfalls, and
tucked-away coves. Not to mention a bridge that gives even the most adventurous
adrenaline junkie a run for their money. Spread over 3,854 acres with 77,000
feet of saltwater shoreline, this is the perfect place to take the whole family
for a spring trip.
Lower Mad River
The first three miles
of this trail are a breeze, with a wide pathway that hugs the river in the
rocky canyon. Columbia Clematis, Hooker's fairy bells, Star-flowered and False
Solomon's Seal, and long-flowered Bluebells are just a few of the wildflowers
you’ll spot on your journey.
Take in the views of the expansive Columbia Gorge from above
and wander through fields of wildflowers, peaceful meadows, and towering
forests. About 2.2. miles from the trailhead is Grassy Knoll, a resting spot
where you can spot Mount Hood and Mount Adams. Go at your own pace and explore
as you wish with 11.5 miles to explore.
