Hikes are better with a prize!

Sometimes kids are gung-ho to hike, but there are times when they may need a little extra incentive to join parents on a trek. (And parents appreciate rewards, too!) Choose one of these hikes that end with a “prize” and that reluctant hiker just may be enticed to join you.

Remember: Before you head out on any of these hikes, check Washington Trails Association for current trail conditions, and for good driving directions.
