Best Hikes with Kids: Western Washington & the Cascades

Absolutely tremendous views, with only a couple patches of snow along the trail. Bring plenty of water, food, and sunscreen (and a camera of course).
Hiked all the way to Burroughs 3. Weather was clear but wind was continuous and biting. When we were in areas sheltered from the wind, though, the sunshine was really pleasant. Some patches of snow in shaded areas, compact snow on the trail on the long traverse up to Burroughs 1. Views were absolutely magnificent. On the way back, we split off onto the Sunrise Rim trail at Burroughs 1. Even though it was about 1/2 mile longer, it was mostly in the sun, and more sheltered from the wind.
Not much more time this year to enjoy that area - all the facilities at the Sunrise Visitor Center are already closed for the season.
