Interested in going for a hike on Mother's Day? First, get inspired by reading Kathy Englert's lovely essay about how a hike with her young daughter to Dungeness Spit became an annual Mother's Day tradition.

Then check the weather forecast, and browse WTA's freshest trip reports for some good trails.

If you're headed to Dungeness Spit, or other destinations on the Olympic Peninsula, remember that the Hood Canal bridge is closed for major repairs until mid-June. If you do succeed in getting to the Peninsula, the road to Hurricane Ridge is now open.

Other great places to take Mom for a hike? Boulder River near Darrington. Or Horseshoe Bend at the start of the Mount Baker Highway. Skookum Flats near Greenwater. Or treat her to a wildflower display at Umtanum Ridge in eastern Washington.
