Easy Hike- Pony Bridge Hike. At a mostly flat 5 miles, the trail to Pony Bridge is a perfect family outing. Eat lunch at the trailhead and wander through the rain forest until you reach the scenic Pony Bridge. While this is all there is to do at this destination, keep your eyes and ears open for elk and the occasional black bear!

Beast Mode Hike- Day trip to Enchanted Valley Chalet. This is an epically long 27 miles round trip, but worth staggering into the enchanted valley and seeing waterfalls cascading off of the neighboring cliffs are the closest thing to Norway you can get. For more fun, hike in, take a full day and hike out on day three for an amazing long weekend getaway.
