N. Cascades hiking and possible Anacortes, San Juan Islands

Jump to last reply

We are a small group planning a trip to Washington in early August 2011. We have 8 days, 7 nights. We are trying to work up an itinerary to include day hikes in N. Cascade NP and maybe a couple days by the ocean in San Juan Islands. One itinerary we had seen online had 2 nights in Concrete at Ovenell's Ranch, 2 nights in Winthrop at River's Edge Resort, 2 nights around Diablo Lake and then return to Seattle. Hikes included Maple Pass, part of the Pacific Crest, Thunder Creek and Cascade Pass.
Another itinerary had two nights at Marblemount, 2 at Mazama, and 2 at Chelan. Another spot that looked neat was Stehekin, though it seems like it would take a fair amount of time getting there and back by boat, and we only have the 8 days.
We are primarily looking for scenic day hikes, and maybe some low key bicycling, beach walking. We don't need fancy lodging, but needs to be clean. Any suggestions re itinerary, great hikes, or great places to stay would be appreciated. We have yet to find any vacancies along the coast. Thanks!
