    Bucket list help in the Pacific NW

    I've always dreamed of riding the Pacific NW and I'm finally doing it. I have about eight days I can ride and I'm looking for some insider help. I was looking at splitting my time between some Washington riding (maybe Tiger Mountain and down by Rainier), Vancouver Island, and Squamish/Whister, but these are all open to suggestion.

    The factors I'm dealing with:
    - I'll be looking to camp for most of this trip, but am not against an AirBNB for the right trail.
    - I'm an advanced rider, I don't mind climbing 3500' on a ride, I like technical descent and jumps, but I'm not a free rider so no mandatory 10' foot drops but still want a challenge. I'll be riding a Yeti SB6.
    - I'm looking for rides that will take 2-3 hours.
    - I'll be with my wife and daughter so easy trails nearby is a plus so I can ride with them after my epic adventures.
    - My wife will be glad to shuttle me if necessary but I'll mostly be looking for rides I can climb and descend or pay for a shuttle.

    Any suggestions welcome, thank you community!

    For Squamish I would suggest camping at Alice Lake Provincial Park and riding from there. You'll be able to fill your boots with tech trails galore with easy ones mixed in as well. Check Trailforks for top trails in that zone.

    Please don't camp illegally and shit where you please, we are overrun in Squamish with illegal campers.

    Definitely plan to stop and ride in Bellingham. Camping at Larabee State Park is great and the trails there, as well as Galbraith are excellent.

    You have so many options in the whole region.
