We hiked this with a scout troop including 25 people and 2 dogs. We started at the Gazzum Lake car park at the north end of the preserve at NE Marshall Road. The car park is easy to find and has 8 spaces for no charge. The trail is made up of four trails. There is Close trail at the north of the preserve which goes to the West beach. Then there's the main trail, and a loop to a 400 foot peak which adds a quarter mile. Then at the south car park with 4 spaces and no charge at Deerpath Lane NE. At the south car park there is a side trail called Peters Path which leads to Pleasant Beach at the South of Bainbridge Island.

Lewis River Trail

South Cascades

We're at the cusp of waterfall season! With five waterfalls in a 7-mile roundtrip, this Lewis River hike is one to keep on your April-June to-do list. If you're hiking with creaky knees or kiddos, take in the magnificent, close-in Lower Lewis River Falls. If you want a longer hike with some ups and downs, venture all the way to Taidnapum Falls, 3.5 miles in.
