A trail is made with laughter, with family and with friends. A trail is made by hikers, by climbers, by runners, by students and grandparents. A trail is made by all of us, together. A trail is made by you.

Volunteer on one of these featured work parties for a day or for a week's vacation!

    Lewis River Trail (Apr 10)

    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.
