Liberty Lake County Park is a popular picnicking area, with a swimming beach, cooking shelters, playground, campsites, and volleyball nets. But many people don’t realize the park extends far beyond the facilities through a timbered mountain preserve.
This hike meanders up Liberty Creek and along a hillside through the park before gaining nearly 1,200 feet in elevation. It’s a mostly cool, quiet retreat, first through cottonwoods and ponderosa pines, then through Douglas firs and cedars.
