Have you come to Washington to delve into the state’s wealth of rich mountain wilderness locations? When you’re looking for a good place to hike, take a quick trip up north from our hotel in Monroe. This is where you’ll find Mount Pilchuck State Forest.

This park is 1,893 acres of mountain terrain and old-growth forest. Take the trip up a challenging, three-mile hiking trail to reach the old fire lookout at the summit of the mountain. It is here that you can take in an amazing, panoramic view of the Cascades, the Olympics, and the waters of Puget Sound. A popular destination for people looking for a strenuous and rewarding outdoor experience.
