Dosewallips Spring Walk

Early spring is a lovely time to explore the Dosewallips River.

The Natural History Society is gathering on Tuesday, March 15 for a 3.5 mile hike along the Steam Donkey Loop in Dosewallips State Park.

Craig Romano, author of Day Hiking Olympic Peninsula, says this is “an especially attractive hike. Offering glimpses of the Dosewallips River, passing by tumbling creeks, and traversing quiet stands of tall timber…”

Some people may wish to extend the walk by adding the 1.5 mile Maple Valley loop. Unlike most of our outings, this is a hike without a leader. It’s just a day to explore the natural history of an area most of us don’t know.

Bring your field guide, a lunch, water, and dress for the weather.
