WSU Campus & Pleasant Valley Park Hike

Hike Distance: 8.0 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1723.2 miles

Elevation Gain: 874 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 192902 feet

I wasn’t interested in driving far from home today so I opted to hike around the extensive trail system at the WSU campus in Salmon Creek Washington,  I also chose to hike the additional mileage to visit the Pleasant Valley Park area.

I think this area is very under rated and it’s a real gem!  The trail system at WSU has many options both in and out of the forest setting.  There is even a fantastic creek flowing through this area; Mill Creek.  The walk to Pleasant Valley Park affords some great views of Salmon Creek.

As usual, there were few people on the trail system, and I had plenty of solitude.  There were also some great photo opportunities.  An excellent relaxing day. 🙂
