Easy trail, runs behind the WWU campus. Great view from the observation tower. Fun walking through the tunnel!

“Beautiful Views, and Hiking Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The view from the tower at the top of the hill is very nice, and there are trails that lead various places. If you want a good aerobic hike, you can park at the very bottom by the gate and hike up to the top. Lush vegetation is a feast for the eyes at various times of the year.

“Great place for a walk/run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is a lovely area to go for a walk or run. There are a number of interconnecting trails in a lush, beautiful landscape on the edge of the university. This is a great place to spend an hour or two in the forest, very close to downtown.

“Nice walk in the woods.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

OK as an arboretum you might think you'll see a lot of exotic tree and shrub species. It's not that sort of place..more native plant oriented but the trails are good and the viewpoint structure is a nice touch.
