This trail is a little hard to find, but well worth getting out of town for. Quiet and easy hiking. When you get near the end of the trail, be sure to climb up the rocks and peer into the tunnel where the old pipeline came through the mountain. I didn't realize until we we back across the bridge that... More

Now, this was FUN!!! I know it is February, but do the bathrooms REALLY have to be closed???? The hike was very fun, but we never did see the old mine that the water was piped up to??

This isn't much of a "wilderness" experience as the highway runs on the other side of the river that you follow, but the forest is lush and the river is pretty special. In the mile or so of walking along the river, you pass by at least 2 sets of Class IV rapids and other whitewater as well. There is... More

This could have been an awesome hike...but P doesn't do fording. The initial bit, crossing the pipeline bridge, was great, but everything is running high right now and about a half-mile in we came to a stream that she didn't feel she could ford. By and large, this seems like a nice little hike by the river, but nothing that... More

This hike is the greatest for an easy hike close to town. It's scenic, level and not too long. I almost hate to review it because it's never too crowded either and I don't want that to change. Good for dogs, older folks and kids too. If you feel like a little bit of traversing the bank you can get... More

This is an easy two mile hike along the beautiful Tumwater river. We always plan our trip so we can picnic just across the bride. A nice shady place with a beautiful view. Today we watched a para glider catching the thermals over the mountain. Wonderful.
