    Wow the views from this hike. Definitely worth it but not a leisurely climb. Make sure to bring a camera for some epic pics.

    Renae Harrison reviewed Mill Loop Trail

    almost 4 years ago

    We just did this trail and the road was closed which gives you an additional couple of miles to walk in snow. It was surprisingly busy for being closed. We saw another 30 people. Which makes me scared to think of how busy this might be when the mill is open to the public. The mill has a lot of fascinating historical information. The destination we used in our alltrails app is not the correct one for getting here unfortunately so we drove an extra half hour that we didn't need to. Make sure you cross reference the location for this hike.

    This is an awesome trail but it registered as 7.5 miles for us. The bridge is not in yet so we did spend some time finding a good place to cross the river. The falls is totally worth it and we also had some nice epic views of Mt. Hood. No bugs yet. Still a little snow pack near the falls but very little. We only saw three other couples for the entire hike. The visitor center where you can buy the parking pass was closed but their bathrooms were open. There are no bathroom facilities at the trailhead.

    This is a great bike trail that runs from Sedro-Wooley to Concrete, Washington. It has very light use. It runs along the SR-20 with epic views of the nearby mountain ranges, Skagit River, a winery, etc. with elk and eagle viewing sites along the way. A really fun ride. Much more preferable to competing with the traffic on the SR-20. Leashed dogs are allowed as well.

    What a great trail with epic views of the Skagit River, Sauk Lake and all the surrounding mountain ranges including Mt. Baker. Though the ascent can be strenuous, there are plenty of shaded rest spots on the switchback ends to take a breather -- well worth the effort. There isn't any shade at the trailhead parking lot if you're leaving Fido in the car. There is a bathroom facility. No mud and hardly any bugs. Lots of open air space if you want to bring the binocs. This trail was very busy but the views make it obvious why. You'll need to utilize the cutouts on the road up and down so oncoming traffic can pass. Amazing. There were some trail runners but the grade is pretty steep and it's really too crowded -- maybe on a non-weekend and if the grade won't get to your knees.

    Renae Harrison reviewed Anderson/Watson Lakes Trail

    almost 5 years ago

    Just finished this hike yesterday and even though I was bug fodder, I do think this is worth doing at least once. If I ever do it again, I will be sure to actually carry the bug spray with me. Ours sweated off on the way there and we paid on the way back. Can't remember when I have ever dealt with such aggressive bugs and flies. Also, if you are already tired when you come to the fork off for deciding which lake to visit, choose Watson over Anderson. Then if you have enough energy after doing Watson, go ahead and do Anderson after. Watson is definitely the more picturesque. (See photo). For the drive up, no issues for a 4-wheel drive. A few ruts on the road. A potty by Baker Lake trail at the beginning of the mountain and then another potty when you get to the trailhead (at least 30-45 minutes later). Even if you don't the trail, the drive is spectacular. Driving over the dam and seeing Mt. Baker and Baker Lake are epic. Don't miss the waterfall to the right when you are driving over the dam to get there. Also the road over the dam only fits one car so give it a peek before you start across in case someone else has already started on the other side. Shaded parking at the trailhead in case you need to leave Fido in the car. Noticed a few people carrying poles and you can see the big fish getting some of those bugs off the water -- they must be enormous. Discover pass isn't good. You need Northwest Passage.

    This is a good trail system if you are near the airport and want to get some exercise in. It can be more than 7.6 miles (we did 10) but you'll need to switch back & forth from the river to trails behind commercial buildings. Not sure what the traffic is like on this road during normal days. The day we went they had closed the road for a bike race. There are some really cute river homes to check out along the way.

    This trail provides great views of the city and mountain ranges as well as some interesting and nice homes along the last part of the trail. We went on a weekday so there was traffic on the trail but it wasn't too bad. I wouldn't do it on the weekend. Just a little mud for late March. Water still flowing for plenty of drinking options for your pup and there's a no leash park on the top. Plenty of benches and grassy open spaces to rest up before your return. No bathrooms.

    Just did this really fun trail yesterday on a clear sunny day. Great views of snow capped mountain ranges along the way and lots of varied scenery. The trail is 11 miles out and back, not 10. The trail continues on for a total or 10 miles one way to a lookout point for the super hardy hikers. There was still snow in a few spots and some mud but not much. Make sure to bring a jacket for wooded shady areas, water and maybe a snack. The trail is marked really well with half mile markers the entire way. The waterfall is beautiful. One of the things we liked best about this trail was the seclusion. We only saw 6 other people at very spaced out intervals, 2 on horseback. You'll need to drive on some dirt roads to access the trailhead and a Discovery Pass (WA state) is required. We took our dog with us and there's plenty of streams the last 3 miles for pups to drink from. I highly recommend this trail for people who like to hike without crowds.

    This trail is beautiful. Went mid-February on a sunny Friday and saw a total of about 30 people so it's a popular trail even when it's not the weekend. Lots of mud but that's to be expected in February. Not sure if it dries out during the summer. Some narrow high passages. It would be nice if people would wait for one another rather than try to pass on these. I think this trail might be a little dangerous for little ones -- keep your eyes peeled on them, slippery footing. Fine for pups.

    Renae Harrison reviewed Tillamook Head National Recreation Trail

    almost 6 years ago

    If you do the roundtrip from Indian Beach to the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse Viewpoint, it's actually only 3.5 miles but there is a 900' foot elevation increase. The views of the lighthouse and beach are amazing. This is a muddy trail. Make sure to wear waterproof shoes. The campsite near the viewpoint is very nice with a bathroom, shelters and firepit and the park provides wood & water. The bunkers were intriguing. Would have been nice to see some placards of information on those in addition to the placards regarding Lewis and Clark. Didn't take our dog because the parking lot looked crowded but we only ended up seeing 2 other people on the trail. I think most of the people end up going to the beach.
