What are the best resources for finding who owns the land around the summits in the US. Specifically Washington state to start with. I want to do a road trip and there are several peaks along the way but I have no way of knowing who to contact or if I even need to. Are there any online resources or is it ok to just hike the mountain and activate unless there are signs telling to keep off?
Might be obvious for natives here, but I come from Finland where outdoors is free game to all on foot. Obvious restrictions of course of staying out of someones backyard. But it does not matter if land is owned privately, it is still ok to hike and camp there with certain restrictions.
