When it comes to spoiling our furry little pet pals, we spare no expenses to keep them happy. They say a tired dog is a happy dog, and thankfully, the city is chock full of off-leash dog parks, outdoor breweries, and pet-friendly mom and pop shops to cater to their every whim. Yet when it comes to hiking, another northwest staple, some of the more popular hiking destinations are off-limits to pets. It’s a bummer, but understandable considering the wildlife that calls the area home.
But that doesn’t mean there’s a lack of viable options. On the contrary, there are quite a few gorgeous, scenic hikes you can do around the area that will allow you to simultaneously enjoy two of the greatest things in life: dogs and nature. Important things to consider before venturing out with your best bud are the terrain, the difficulty, and any seasonal changes.
We’ve rounded up a few of our faves, both in and out of the city, mapped for your convenience.
