Use the new, free app to explore your State Parks.

Washington State Parks recently launched a new mobile app (for Android and iPhone devices) in celebration of their centennial. The app features park amenities, maps and directions; events and weather alerts; and GPS mapping features.

With more than one hundred state parks, Washington has one of the largest state park systems in the country. Nearly every state park offers some hiking, and many feature miles of overlooked trails full of wildlife, plant-life and landscapes. The new app is one more tool to help you explore them.

Weekend bonus: Washington State Parks is offering fee-free days this weekend, on April 27 and 28, which means you can try out the parks for free before investing in them with a Discover Pass.

Three steps to your next great State Park adventure:

  1. Download the free app.
  2. Grab your Discover Pass.
  3. Use WTA's guide to 10 favorite state parks and 10 lesser-known gems to get started.

      Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

      Diablo Lake

      North Cascades

      Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
