Headed out on two hikes today. Just got back from the trail to Peek-a-boo Lake and decided to hike the Old Sauk Trail #728 while I was here. This was hike 46 of 50 planned at age 50. Weather was nice today with sunshine but most of that was while I was hiking the Peek-aboo Trail. While hiking The Old Sauk Trail it was over cast but still a nice level walk for 6 miles roundtrip. It would be nice to be here when the Salmon are running up The Sauk River so if you decide to hike this trail look into it during the time of year when you might see some Salmon. This will increase your chance of seeing Eagles, Opsrey, Blue Herron and Bears of course. All and all a nice little hike with lots of moss and ferns all around the trail. This trail is very nice for people not wanting too strain themselves too much. Only a gain or drop of 200 feet from one end to the other. This area reminds me of the Olympic National Park with all the moss growing on the trees. Trail is in great shape and easy to follow. Some great views of the river but over half the trail you can not see the river. You follow what I believe to be the old route that the river use to take and one of the reason for the name Old Sauk River Trail. Check out the video of the Sauk River from the trail as well as other hikes I have done in Washington State on my youtube channel at lmm3181 or click on this safe but direct link to this hike. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-sIo8ULfO8
As always get out and see this beautiful state and enjoy your hiking.
