Fall is the perfect time for family hikes

When the temperature turns cooler, it’s tempting to give up outdoor adventures in favor of cozier, indoor fun. Don’t put away your walking shoes just yet. Crisp fall days are perfect for a family hike — the air isn’t yet truly chilly and colorful leaves and soft light make for great family photo ops. These seven walks and hikes around the South Sound offer great fall color and are easy enough for even your youngest hikers. (Really love fall color walks?
