Share A Favorite Hike With Your Dog In Washington

Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In Washington

Submitted by Dinah
Just north of Hoodsport Washington is the Hama Hama Recreation Area. There's a trail called the Lena Lake trail, and Lena Lake has actually two parts. "Upper Lena Lake" is inside of the Olympic National Park, so you can't take your dog in there. But "Lower Lena Lake" is outside of the park, while being inside "Olympic National Forest". Dogs ARE allowed up to Lower Lena Lake, and people bring dogs! The river that feeds these lakes goes underground and emerges halfway up the trail to Lower Lena Lake, where your pooch can satisfy his thirst.

We just visited the Mt. Rainier outside of Seattle Washington the other day and they do have one trail that dogs are allowed on that is breathtaking. It's called the Pacific Crest Trail which can be accessed near the Sunrise entrance heading towards Chinook Pass. The trail is 10.5 miles long walked through sub-alpine meadows which are full of flowers from July-Sep., passing lakes and waterfalls. Highly recommended.

Hi -

I hike often with my two weiner dogs. I wanted to let you know that you can add to your Olympic National Park listing. Dogs are now allowed on the Spruce Railroad Trail on the north side of Lake Crescent. You can read our trip report and get more info here
