As I’ve said before, I love urban hikes. They are accessible year-round and some are a great way to keep in hiking shape year-round! So imagine my delight to learn Beers at the Bottom have a new hiking book out all on urban hikes in Washington!
It seems like forever ago that I was conditioning for Mt. St. Helens with challenging hikes in the greater Seattle area. After Mount Townsend, the next one on my list was West Tiger 3 near Issaquah.
Once I returned from my awesome Cali roadtrip in June, I knew I had to buckle down and hit the trails to prepare for an August summit of Mount St. Helens. Next up was one of the areas most-loved conditioning hikes–Mount Townsend.
