If April showers bring May flowers, March sunshine brings slushy snow and iffy conditions in the mountains. Luckily, there remain tons of nearby parks that have trails year-round, including this beautiful state park northeast of Seattle.
Despite only being 37 square miles, there are multiple options to whet your whistle on Vashon Island, whether being a tourist or after hiking in Dockton Forest or Shinglemill Creek Preserve. On this day, we chose Vashon Brewing Community Pub.
Despite living in the greater Seattle area nearly my whole life, I have never been to Vashon Island. That changed this weekend when I hopped on the ferry from West Seattle to hit some snow-free trails!
