Outdoor Recreation

Bellevue is the perfect basecamp city to explore all the natural beauty the Pacific Northwest has to offer. With over 80 miles of trails in Bellevue and home to Lake Washington & Lake Sammamish with close-proximity (one hour in each direction) to three National Parks including The North Cascades NP, Mt Rainier NP & Olympic NP there is no location in North America offering this proximity to such natural splendor.

The Great Cascade Mountains lie immediately to the East of Bellevue and offers a backdrop for endless options of outdoor trailsparksswimming beachesgolf courses, and more.

For the best resource of hiking trails, reviews and locations please visit our partners at the Washington Trails Association.

Also during the Summer of 2020 take advantage of several socially distanced road trip ideas!
