I will be in Seattle in mid-August and would like recommendations for short (2-3) hiking trips that are accessible by public transit. Or by car (no more than 45 minutes from downtown). Thanks,
I'm going to be in Seattle for a few days and wonder what's a better day-trip for a couple of hours of hiking--Mt. St. Helen's or Mt. Rainier? What's the general travel time by car between Seattle and either of the two parks? Which offers the most scene route? I'm a light hiker, good for 2-3 hours or so. Would welcome route recommendations as well.
Planning to drive between these two cities this summer and would be interested to know a.) how long would the quickest route take (and what is it) b.) can you suggest a scenic route (and how long you think it might take).
