Kid-friendly hikes ... not too far away
My family loves to hike, but we rarely travel more than a few miles from our home for our woodsy walking adventures. We are always hitting the default button by driving to our favorite local haunts, Seattle's Discovery Park and Carkeek Park.
I vowed to get us out of our comfort zone and onto trails a little further afield, within 90 minutes of our front door. To that end, read on for eight nearby hiking trails that offer fun for kids and a variety of difficulty levels.
Important note: Follow good hiking safety practices, and always check current conditions in advance — the Washington Trails Association is a great resource — especially if you are hiking outside the summer season.
