Head up to Snoqualmie Pass in the summer, or in the winter if you have the gear and check out some of the hikes. There are tons, one I did this winter was to Snow Lake, which is a hike that starts at the Alpental Parking lot and is a beautiful hike back into the mountain, even in late August I ran into snow where the shade kept it cool but it was still gorgeous out and warm. Snow Lake is the first of 3 lakes its 6 miles round trip, or so the guides say but I think it's less. The snow slows you down but you can be in and out in 90 min or so. Its really not a difficult hike, and is a very well used trail with tons to see along the way including waterfalls, views across the valley and did I mention waterfalls.
Equipment: Boots, poles, and water...the usuals.
Directions: I-90 to exit #52. From the exit, turn north and take the second right onto Alpental Road. Continue for 1.5 miles and park in the large gravel lot to the left. The trailhead is on the right.
