A good flat hike that I did with my dad & brother. The directions on alltrails however is wrong. When you see the sign that says "Big Quilcene, 11 miles" take that right & not the left that the gps tells you to. You'll see another sign soon after that tells you to take a left for half a mile to get to the lower big Quilcene trailhead.

Emery pretty protected hike. Best to go on toward Notch Pass Trail to Thomson Creek. A gem at the end!

We decided to head out with our three kiddos for a hike on this sunny day in March and this one was perfect. There are lots of waterfalls and small creeks to jump over on the trail. The trail is nice and not difficult even for our six year old.
