Welcome to NWHikes
We are in a perpetual process of gathering hike information for trails throughout the Pacific Northwest including: Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, Idaho, Alaska, and Montana.
So far, we have collected trail information for hikes in Washington, Oregon, and a couple in British Columbia. As of yet, there is not complete hike details for all hikes that are listed. Keep checking back as you'll see more information added to Northwest Hikes. Also, in the near future, we'll be asking you for your favorite hikes that we've missed.
Our goal is to have a single home on the web that has hiking information for the entire region.
"What trail will you take?"
After a long adventure, the search functionality has returned. It was present in a previous iteration of the site but never made it in the move to the new format a while back. It has been a feature that folks have been asking for. Finally put back.
Ever since I started this site, I wanted to get maps to show with the details of the hike. Finally, this has come to be! There are still some hikes that do not have map information but the list is shrinking. Those hikes that don't have the correct information yet show a map to Mount Rainier. One more step ticked off the list of things to add or put back.
This site has been around for a number of years. While hiking information has been routinely added, the site layout and design had become quite stale. NWHikes is pleased to present a new redesigned modern site for you to access your hiking information. The site is better designed to be able to work with varying sized screens and works better than before with smart phones. If you have thoughts and ideas for improvements, please contact us. Enjoy!
Hot Spell in the Pacific Northwest
The weather forecasters are predicting a hot spell in the Pacific Northwest. Be prepared for the heat when hitting the trails. Bring plenty of water and/or a water filtration system. Be mindful of the heat-related warning signs, and find ways to stay cool.
