5 Enchanting Lake Hikes you must Explore in the PNW

Are you as enthralled by getting lost with a lake as much as I am?

I don’t know exactly what it is, but there is just something so magical about working your ass off on a blistering hot day, in the enchanting forest of the Pacific North West, to end up at such a serene and enchanting body of water.

Finishing off a hike at one of these nostalgic lakes gives such a sense of calm, serenity and peace. It makes you want to open your arms to mother nature; to love, surrender and breathe her in… or maybe take a dip.

So without further ado,

Here are your top 5 PNW lake hikes to get lost with this summer…
