A lowland, level walk along the Sauk River bed is a Hansel and Gretel wonderland, easy enough for small children or disabled walkers, yet luminously lovely year-round. Deep forest trail skirts white water vistas and then meanders around side streams, pools, and seep ponds where in the heat of summer children can safely play. The Sauk is one of Washington’s most scenic rivers, yet this trail along its banks is often overlooked as a family hike. The forest is a magical study in shades of green.
