Best hike close to Seattle. An epic hike full of switch backs ascending a beautiful mountain 45 mins outside of Seattle. Around 100000 people hike the trail each year. I've hiked Mount Si many times and no matter how many people its always a great experience. This is what you need to know.
Bozeman is an epic place. Just 10 mins outside the city are one of the best hikes, its the College M Trail. You can go to the right up the ridge on a steep trail that is less than a mile, or you can travel to the left on a more gradual path that lasts 1.5 miles. Then 10 mins you can be at a world-class restaurant Blackbird or having some of the best coffee at Treeline and make sure you try Wild Crumb. Run, hike, fish, ski, or just wonder the cast wild places in Montana.
Hike one of the most uber popular hikes on the west coast. Just mins outside from downtown Los Angeles and close to West Hollywood is the 2.7 mile loop. Pro tip When you go to Runyon Canyon Park, remember that there is one entrance at the top of the park in the North area and two entrances at the bottom of the park in the South. I usually start at one of the bottom entrances so my hike begins with a climb and ends with a descent. When you start your hike at the bottom of the park you will need to choose if you hike the trail clockwise or counter-clockwise.
