Cool Flat Hike thought the desert

Flat, easy hike. Lots of little discoveries along the way. Bridges, stream, and even a rattlesnake or two!

The trail through the canyon is not to difficult and is quite scenic in the spring when the wildflowers are blooming and the creek is running full. In summer it can be hot and not as scenic. Birders will see a nice variety of birds in the canyon. It will require a round trip as otherwise you will have to... More

So fun to take bikers and hikers of all ages! The wildflowers are beautiful right now too. Watch out for snakes in the warmer weather though. Even my little guy rides his strider bike here (no pedals) and loves it.

We enjoyed this relaxing walk on a sunny morning; the fall colours were stunning, especially the sumac.

Have only visited once. Wanted to find it for future hiking. Milo (Golden Retr) and I visited one hot June Saturday. It was very eacy to find and access the trail head at the bottom of the canyon. We only hiked about a mile because it was very hot and no real access to the river, creek but will try... More

It's not crowded, very flat, some nice views of deserty-rock, pretty stream. Fairly close-in but not a very pretty drive, and overall not very exciting--But still..a nice place to take a walk. PS Gorgeous blossoms that smelled so sweet---could they have been mock orange????

This a wonderful trail just out of town near Yakima, WA. The area is beautiful and trail runs along a river making this an excellent place to go running to get away from everything or just a short manageable hike to take the family on as it is flat enough for small children to travel a ways on it. It... More

The default picture for this trail is misleading. It's not really like an open field, its a gravel trail that runs through a canyon with mountains/hills on each side. Some nice cliffs and a river run along the trail. The standard trail is about 2.5 miles (one way) with minimal elevation gain. For folks looking for a more challenging hike... More

A small natural area in sagebrush near town and great for a short day hike. There is not a lot to see but just nice to get outdoors in a natural area.
