North Cascades National Park has some of the best camping in Washington state, as well as the most memorable treks within its namesake mountain range. Spend a night at Sahale Glacier Camp before setting out on the best trails in North Cascades National Park such as the 43-mile Devil's Dome loop. For a day hike in the North Cascades, take a look at the  Chain Lakes Loop. These North Cascades hikes should be a part of any hiker's trip to Seattle, only a three hour drive away.
