A Magical Hike on the Gnomes Trail in Maple Valley is fun loop within a network of trails called Henry Ridge in Maple Valley. This whole area is so pretty it feels like a fairy tale, which is probably why many of the trails sport names like Once Upon a Time, Lil’ Red and The Lorax. Get more information about Gnomes Trail at this website below before heading out: https://www.soundsfunmom.com/2017/11/15/take-a-magical-hike-on-the-gnomes-trail-in-maple-valley/

6) Sightseeing/Day trips
While this is a little further away (approx 2hr drive) it is well worth scheduling a day trip to see this charming Bavarian-style town tucked away in the Cascade mountains along Hwy 2. Not only does the town remind you of “The Sound of Music”, but the drive to get there has scenery not to be missed. Festivals like May Day and Octoberfest are especially fun. You could also make this a weekend trip!

Looking to explore Washington and the Pacific Northwest further? Here are some awesome multi-day trips.
Looking to see Washington beauty at its best? There’s nothing like doing this on the Cascade Loop! From the salty sea air surrounding the Puget Sound, flowering fruit trees from Leavenworth, Wenatchee and Lake Chelan, acres of fresh cut hay and farmland in the Methow and Skagit Valleys, and miles upon miles of lush evergreen forest along the Stevens Pass Greenway and North Cascades National Park. This is the road trip of a lifetime. Check out this YouTube video! https://youtu.be/5nzKDcKBB3M

A small coastal town -- Astoria is tucked into the gorgeous inlet where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean -- that’s also worth your attention. Astoria, is an easy day trip from both Seattle and it’s a great place to spend some of your vacation time. It’s got history, beaches, and not to mention the beautiful Oregon coastline. Visit the Astoria Tower, the Peter Iredale shipwreck, and the nearby Cannon Beach with its iconic beachside town and scenic shoreline.
