Just went to find the mill and I knew it would be closed. Went to photograph it anyway so it was nice having the place to myself. Easier to find than I thought and a beautiful setting. A little challenging to photograph, take your wide angle lens. Make sure you have good shoes (hiking) lots of moss makes the rocks slippery. Having a covered bridge over the creek right next to the mill was a pleasant surprise. Plan to go back and explore some more.

This is a genuine Grist Mill that is operated on weekends by volunteers. It is in a gorgeous setting. Great place for a small family picnic and a short walk across the covered bridge and up the creek. Operates on donations only.

The volunteers that are restoring this mill are very knowledgeable and provide a very interesting presentation of the mill, including grinding of grains into flours. Not to mention it is a great photo op.

We've been there a few times. I recommend going on a weekday, if possible, even though the mill itself is only open on weekends, and in the summer (I think). During the summer weekends it gets difficult to find parking at times. The creek and surrounding area is just beautiful! The gentlemen who volunteer at the mill are very knowlegable and nice to talk to. You can get flour there too!
Continue your drive up the Lewis River and stop at Lucia Falls, Moulton Falls, and Sunset Falls is you can. Our favorite time of year to take this drive is in the fall. The colors are so pretty.

This is a historic mill that is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is "the only grain grinding mill in Washington that has maintained its original structural integrity, grinds with stones, and is water-powered." Docents are there to talk about the mill and to do grinding demonstrations. They bag the resulting flour or cornmeal, which is then available to visitors for a donation. The mill is very scenic and photogenic, as is the recently built covered bridge next to it. It is well worth the 15 minute drive from Woodland. OPEN ONLY ON SAT AND SUN FROM 1-4 PM. No charge, donation only.
