Learn to recognize many trees of the NW. The magnolia tree area when blooming is breathtaking. Great area for hiking, with smaller loops for those who don't want much of a workout.

There are so many great trails in this park. It would take more than 1 trip to see them all. Some are better for fall colors - and I did not find the best fall color trails, but had a great time anyways.

This place is special. We spent a half-hour walking a few short trails. fantastic. Really impressive. There was one overlook spot that had an excellent view of Mount St. Helens and Mount Ranier. The diversity of species was incredible. Beware of limited parking.

Go on a guided tour -- the guide we had was very knowledgeable. Extensive site, with many trees from around the world, divided into groups and labelled.

Wonderful and a bit wild feeling, walked up from the World Forestry Center through different sections, some more open, some more closed and grown over. Walked through the oak collection and on the far end of it finally found the Notholithocarpus! Three trees, fruiting heavily,...More

A nice place for walks of any length among the trees. The trails are well maintained and marked; maps are available at the visitor center. As someone who lives in flat terrain, I will mention there are some inclines but they are moderate and certainly...More
