Pacific Northwest Hiking road tripping along the West coast of the United States

Doing a road trip along the coast of the United States and visiting each national park sounds breathtaking, but needs lots of planning. Here is a list of the national parks to visit.

North Cascades National Park, Mount Rainer National Park, Olympic National Park, Crater Lake National Park, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Redwood National and State Park, and Point Reyes National Park

Start with Washington's North Cascades National Park which is located in northern Washington. Mountains stretched across giving the United States its own Alps. Move onto the 14,000 foot peak at Mount Rainer National Park in Seattle. When the mountain is visible and cloud free, one can see waterfalls, forests, and icy vistas. Olympic National Park is in Washington and the deepest lake in the US is just below the amazing view. Climb 2,000 feet to the summit of an inactive volcano at the Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Redwoods are the tallest and the most massive trees in the world. The population of redwoods have actually decreased and are being preserved in state parks such as the Redwood National and State Park. While hiking within the park, you are able to see banana slugs, elk, and grey wales if one ventures off closer to the coast along the Pacific Ocean trails.
