Lake Sylvia State Park has something for everyone: logging history and operations, a dam, a thirty-acre lake, camping, picnicking, and any number of great trails to explore. Two of these trails—the Sylvia Creek Forestry Trail and the Two Mile Trail—are featured here. Both are secluded in a forest of western hemlock and Douglas fir, some of which is part of a working tree farm. Though the trails are managed by two different agencies and for different purposes, they are contiguous with each other and offer a similar forest experience and a great workout. Surface: Dirt and gravel; the trail can be very muddy. Location: Grays Harbor County.
