Will this save me any money?

Absolutely! You'll still need to sleep, eat, and get from spot to spot. You'll find all that in our itinerary and more! While there are hikes listed in the itinerary, we offer alternate options as well. We've also packed in the viewpoints we visited, and how to structure your day to maximize your trip and do everything you want to do.

I don't like to hike. Will I still find value in this itinerary?

A lot! There are three national parks in the state of Washington. We provide an itinerary that replicates our experience with all our learnings for the optimal trip within the parks including hikes, overlooks, and experiences we did and can vouch for that they’re worth it.

What is there to do in Washington's National Parks?

This itinerary breaks down everything in one PDF guide. We have several episodes on Washington's National Parks: Mt Rainier and Olympic & North Cascades. The itinerary adds even more value by planning every detail of a 8-day trip so all you have to do is truly book it, show up and enjoy the trip. We learn a lot on our trips about things that were worth it, things we wish we did, and the optimal route to take if we could do it over. You benefit from those learnings with this itinerary! Our podcast episodes tell you what we did, but not to the level of detail you'll find within our itinerary.
