I could only go on a short hike due to a family get together tonight. I knew this park would be crowded, on such a beautiful day, but went anyway. This was a complete circum-navigation of the park in a clockwise direction.
I typically gain access to the forested section of the park, and then follow the Lewis River around to the SW portion of the hike. I next continue around and through the second half of the forested trail section, to complete the loop.
The Lewis River was a bit lower than it has been. The views of the river were stellar and I stopped often to enjoy watching the flowing water. I also took plenty of pictures.
Although crowded today, it was still quite enjoyable. I’m so glad to have gotten out, for just a short stroll. You can’t go wrong in this regional park!
