My itinerary to Portland, MRNP, Seattle, ONP, NCNP, Vancouver

Jump to last reply

Here is an itinerary I have planned out for my upcoming trip to the Pacific Northwest. I have booked the flights so the start and end dates can't change, but I haven't booked any hotels yet so I could make other changes.

Please let me know if you think I should change the order of places to make driving easier, or if anything seems unreasonable in terms of trying to fit too much into a day. I'm open to any other recommendations on what to see/do too. Thanks for reading!

Thu June 29: Fly to Portland, arrive at 11am. After renting car and eating lunch, will have all afternoon to explore downtown.

Fri June 30: Go to Columbia River Gorge.

Sat July 1: Go to the farmer's market and/or Saturday market - these are supposedly must sees. Then at 5pm attend my cousin's wedding.

Sun July 2: Hang out with relatives in the morning, then later in the afternoon or evening drive 3 hours to Mt. Rainier National Park.

Mon July 3: Do the Skyline Trail (4.5 hours) and Lakes Loop (4 hours?) hikes.

Tue July 4: Visit Grove of the Patriarchs, then drive to the Sunrise area and do the Burroughs Mountain (2.5 hours) and Glacier Basin (4 hours) hikes.

Wed July 5: Have time for maybe one more thing at Mt. Rainier, and then drive 2.5 hours to Seattle. Maybe some time in the afternoon to do something in Seattle.

Thu July 6: Olympic Structure Park, Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square

Fri July 7: Drive through Whidbey Island on my way to Port Angeles and Olympic National Park.

Sat July 8: Go to Hurricane Ridge and do the Hurricane Hill and Klahhane Ridge hikes.

Sun July 9: Go to Sol Duc in the morning, do a little hiking, then check out Lake Crescent, and in the afternoon go to the coast and check out the beaches.

Mon July 10: Go to Hoh River Rainforest. Then drive 4 hours (via Bainbridge Island?) to Rockport? and North Cascades National Park.

Tue July 11 to Thu July 13: This part I'm not too clear about. I'd like to do the Cascade Pass/Sahale hikes one day. I'd like to take the ferry to Stehekin another day. And I'd like to drive along the Cascades Loop and do some hiking. Then I want to take the 9pm train on Thursday from Bellingham to Vancouver. Maybe I'll have to skip the southern part of the loop from Everett to Wenatchee if there's not enough time.

Fri July 14: Vancouver Lookout, Stanley Park, Granville Island Public Market

Sat July 15: Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain

Sun July 16: Go to Victoria and back to Vancouver. Then take 11pm flight home.
