10. Granite Mountain
One of the more popular mountains in Washington in terms of climbing, Granite Mountain is a pretty steep climb. This because you gain nearly 1,000 feet in elevation for every mile you go up. On the plus side, you’re rewarded with truly exceptional views from the peak, which include Mount Rainier, Kaleetan Peak and Crystal Lake. Because weekend climbs tend to get quite busy at the summit, weekdays are recommended as best for those looking to enjoy the staggering heights of one of the best places to visit in Washington.
