Not the best place to go on a hike. The centralia Indian pipe trail is a lot safer!

This trail is behind my work and decided to walk it with my dog. This trail is down right dangerous with all of the transients living on it. The garbage was discussing and I had to pick up my dog and carry her because I saw a needle.

This trail did not look safe! I wouldn’t walk it unless I had some kind of protection. There was clothes and trash at the beginning the trail. I wouldn’t even walk up it. It looked sketchy
