You probably already know this, but Quincy, WA is surrounded by trees, hills, and rivers. This is the main draw for a lot of our guests, and with good reason!

If you want to see it all for yourself, hiking through the Washington wilds is the way to go. However, it can be hard to know which hikes are actually worth your time! Thankfully, we have a guide for you below so you know which hikes you and your party are interested in.

Let's get walking!

Echo Basin Loop

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1-2 Hours
Length: 2.7 miles

There is a sand dune area that a lot of people like. Despite being called a loop, it doesn't technically connect like a typical loop wood. Keep that in mind.

There is very little shade, as the trail is an open plain, so make sure you take that into consideration.

Frenchman Coulee

Difficulty: Easy - Moderate (depending on your hiking experience).
Time: 3 hours
Length: 4.8 miles

The Frenchman Coulee is a must-do hike for a lot of people. One of the reasons for it is the beautiful geological formations, as well as a refreshing waterfall, that you'll see at your end goal. Rock climbers and boulderers love the trail because there are so many areas to climb.

There is very little shade. Bring lots of water.
