The most valuable time we spend with our family is in nature. This month, we’re highlighting one of our favorite areas: Sky Valley. We love our family cabin in Skykomish. It’s just 1.5hrs away from Seattle and the area is stunning. There are so many great little river towns that run along the Skykomish as you climb Highway 2 up to Stevens Pass with easy access to hiking, swimming, fishing, and relaxing. Here are some beautiful spots for your next getaway!
Easy Hike with Kids: Deception Falls
0.6-mile loop trail with magical creeks, moss-covered old-growth forest, and a roaring waterfall.
Moderate Hike: Trout Lake
3.0-mile roundtrip hike with additional lakes to explore if you’d like to go even further.
Challenging Hike: Lake Serene Trail
7.2-mile hiking trail with a possible detour to the beautiful Bridal Falls along the way.
Swimming Holes: Big Eddy & Money Creek Campground
Great river spots for all ages, or check out Eagle Falls for the adventurous.
Activity with Kids: Great Northern and Cascade Railway
Free 1/8 scale train rides in the historic and adorable town of Skykomish.
