Editor’s note: Just about everything changes when you add a baby to the mix. But outdoors-loving Northwest families with babies and young children don’t have to give up forays into the mountains. In this excerpt from the 2018 guidebook “Best Hikes With Kids: Western Washington,” published by Mountaineers Books, author Susan Elderkin picks out five hikes that are most conducive to strollers and little legs. So, head for the hills with your tots in tow to enjoy the gorgeous views, breathe in the mountain air and connect with nature.
