My family loves to hike, but we rarely travel more than four miles from our home for our woodsy walking adventures. We are always hitting the default button by driving to our favorite local haunts, Discovery Park and Carkeek Park in Seattle.

Recenlty, I vowed to get us out of our comfort zone and onto trails a little further afield, within 90 minutes of our front door in Seattle. To that end, read on for nine nearby hiking trails that offer fun for kids and a variety of difficulty levels.

Important note: Follow good hiking safety practices, and always check conditions (the Washington Trails Association is a great source), especially if you are hiking these in the winter.
