I'm planning a two week vacation to western Washington State in late July. I'll be doing a 2 night weekend backpack with friends there. Outside of that, I don't have any firm plans and would be interested in ideas for day hikes and solo 1-2 night trips, or resources for planning. Thanks!

Depending where you are visiting, options would include:

Mount Rainier National Park
Olympic National Park
Mount St. Helens
Ptarmigan Ridge (Mount Baker Wilderness)
Goat Rocks
Alpine Lakes Wilderness
Glacier Peak Wilderness
Rainy Pass (North Cascades)

Really, it kind of depends what you want to do, how much driving you want to put into it, and the time you have alloted.
