A Summer Hike

Join the Natural History Society on Wednesday, August 22, from 9:00 am-4:00 pm, for a summer hike along the Upper Dungeness River trail.

This is an easy stroll along a roaring river and among towering trees. The forest canopy is magnificent, with old growth Douglas-fir more than 200 feet high and hundreds of years old. The forest floor is a green, mossy carpet with an array of fascinating fungi. The trail crosses the river at 2.6 miles, and a junction at 3.2 miles takes you right to the Camp Handy shelter. This is a great turn-around spot for an easy day on the trail.

Please note that it is a 1 hour 45 minute drive to the trailhead, a good portion of which is on dirt road. RSVP to Eileen
JLTnatural@saveland.org. Please say whether or not you are able to drive so carpools can be established. If you are not driving, please plan to pay the driver $10 for gas due to the distance.
