Need last minute trip idea needed on 04/05/2010 16:08:56 MDT Print View

My wife has company coming in, and with our small house, it will be crowded. So she said to get out of the house for a few days. I said "Okee dokey, I am out a here".

I am leaving tomorrow and looking for a 2 1/2 day trip within a few hours of Seattle. Yakima looks like the best weather that I can find. Does anyone know of a good 20 or 30 mile loop over there without snow?

I may stop on the Yakima river on the way to try my Tenkara.

If no good ideas come up I might hit Ozette out at the coast and get wet.

Thanks,

gl

Olympic Coast? on 04/08/2010 16:19:26 MDT Print View

we did the Ozette Loop on Olympic Coast in Feb ( where you hike from Ozette to Cape Alava and then hike out at Sand Point.) It's not 20 miles but you can make it as many as you want with all the beach hiking. Cape Alava has some good campsites, just make sure you don't camp by the toilet. Keep checking weather for LaPush, right now looks partly cloudy for the weekend with precip around 20%. of course you never now because almost always those weathermen lie..)


(the whole tide thing is overrated there is plenty of space to go around those points)

Hi Elena,
Thanks for the tip, I will hit the coast next.

I did a loop on the Canyon rim trail in Yakima. I got in around 20 miles on what turned into an S24O. The weather was nice in the day dropping to below freezing at night. It was interesting hiking in sagebrush country- Great views. I spent alot of time bushwacking after I got tired of the dirt road that is the trail. I plan to put in a trip report this weekend.
