The 14 best day trips on the US West Coast

Diablo Lake
The intensely turquoise Diablo Lake sits in a bowl ringed by mesmerizing and often snow-topped peaks. There are heaps of trailheads to view-filled hikes, or plop in a canoe for paddling or fishing for rainbow trout. Don’t miss the Diablo Dam Overlook for one of the best views in the Cascade Mountains. 2hr 30min by car.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
