Boulder River Trail brings together a great combination of unlikely elements. Old-growth forests and breathtaking waterfalls can be found in many wilderness areas in the Cascades, but the minimal elevation gain and year-round access available here are two pleasant surprises that make Boulder River stand alone. There is a toilet about 1 mile up French Creek Road. There is no drinking water.

This is a great hike/walk if you are a visitor. Walk along the Sound and there are some great views of the Narows Bridge. It is very pretty, a suspension bridge like the Golden Gate. Looks awsome but not as amazing as the Golden Gate. Good place to spend time, no serious hiking, family walks.
