Spring Hiking Advice from a Dark Lord

Posted by Erika Haugen-Goodman at May 04, 2018 07:00 AM |

Follow along as the Dark Lord, Darth Thaddeus, takes you to a few spring hiking destinations.

It's not easy being a Dark Lord of the Sith.

You wake up every day tormented and angry, and that's after your morning coffee. So how do you break out of the stereotype that every Dark Lord has to be a super villain? You go hiking, of course.

Darth Thaddeus has been writing trip reports for more than a year, letting other hikers know about trail conditions and where to find spring blooms. We rounded up three of the Dark Lord's trip reports from the past year for some spring hiking inspiration. Follow in their footsteps and embrace your inner-Sith on these hikes. 

Camas Meadows

Darth Thaddeus - Camas

Darth Thaddeus says "if you are looking for a short and beautiful spring hike with scenic views and potential for plentiful wildflowers Camas Meadows is a great choice." Get more info in our Hiking Guide.

Lenore Lake Caves

Darth Thaddeus - Lenore

Though this hike focuses more on the geology of the area than wildflowers, it still makes a great spring destination. Thaddeus says it would make an ideal hike for kids. Check out info on the trail in our Hiking Guide.

Lake Chelan State Park - Little Bear Trail

Darth Thaddeus - Little Bear

After a day of brooding, nothing takes the edge off like a hike with wildflowers and a lake view. Thaddeus visited this trail last June and enjoyed hiking both loops to add a bit more mileage. Get more info in our Hiking Guide.

May the fourth be with you! If you're more of the Solo type and want to leave Chewbacca at home, take a look at our solo hiking feature.

These are all great hikes, but if you're going to go with the dark side, there is Deception Pass, Damnation Peak, Mount Terror, Angry Mountain, and many more!
