This is a forest that has retained its natural beauty. Due to its distance to the northernmost part of Washington State, it remains natural and unmarred from man's capacity to leave it's mark with all his outdoor activities. Wonderful drive and hikes available for those who are fit enough to venture long walks. Plenty of opportunities to capture flora and... More

This area is beautiful and worth the ride. I would reccommend obtaining a trail map from the Forest service, or better still, a book describing in detail where to hike depending on your level of fitness and the duratinn and distance desired (ie{ "100 Hikes")

We checked out a variety of campsites that would allow our 29 ft. RV into sites. Out of 10 sites, we liked and knew only about 4 would be the right size for our rig.

Amazing old-growth forest, tons of parks and trails. Take your time exploring. This is a peaceful get-away spot and not too far from civilization.

Endless terrain. There are Mountains in Washington East of the Cascades, minus the crowds. Endless wild terrain to explore.

Beautiful place to hike, see wildlife, and get away from the stress and hustle of your work week. Four wheel drive vehicle is suggested, I drive a Tahoe, and be sure to have an emergency kit and supplies in your vehicle and a two way radio. Cell service is sketchy although emergency calls should ping off the emergency system.

Despite the budget cuts for trail maintenance we found all the trials we used in good shape and the roads and trailheads also in good shape. This is a beautiful area to hike and we look forward to returning soon. A good resource is James Johnson's 50 Highest Peaks in Eastern Washington and Rich Landers' 100 Hikes in the Inland... More
