Methow Valley, WA

In the North Cascades, the Methow Trails are a well-tracked 120-mile network that wanders across forested slopes, farmland, and rolling hills. While you have to shoulder your gear during the day, it's worth the effort for the night in the Freestone Inn, where you can kick back with wine beside a fire, and settle down to a rib eye steak. A daily trail pass costs $22. []
