This was my very first backpack camping trip. It’s actually been my only one. Mostly I do car camping. This is a great beginner backpack camping trip.
Above is a link to the Washington trails and it says it’s 12 miles. I can assure you I didn’t do 12 miles. You pretty much hike for one or two miles, pick a spot and throw down your tent. Then explore the area.
It is so worth it and such a beautiful area.
