Saturday Morning Walk/Hike -Lord Hill Park, Snohomish, WA
January 21 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Walking in Winter. Normal winter weather will not cancel an event, but extreme cold, snow, high winds or torrential rain, will cause me to cancel completely or change what we do for safety’s sake. Please check in the morning of the event to see what is happening. Arm yourself for seasonal weather swings. Please keep your RSVP up to date – even if you are on the waiting list.
Ride horseback, hike, or mountain bike into the vast evergreen forest of this 1,463-acre upland nature preserve. A day’s exploration of this unique wilderness park will include discovering many species of plant and animal life. And, with a little luck, you may observe a family of beavers busily constructing a dam.
The park contains over six miles of designated trails. From the higher points within the park, one can capture panoramic views of the surrounding Snohomish River valley and distant mountain ranges. View points such as Devil’s Butte Lookout or along the ridge of the Pipeline Trail are popular destinations for viewing the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges.
