Saunter around a small lake snugly tucked within a narrow valley on the Skokomish–Satsop River divide. Surrounded by hillsides of regenerating forests, Spider Lake’s tranquil shores are graced with exceptional groves of ancient giants. Pleasant any time of year, this hike glows pearly white in early summer when blossoming dwarf dogwood and queen’s cup blanket the forest floor. Trail-building aficionados may find the loop’s three bridges noteworthy for their durability and aesthetics. Bird-watchers will enjoy the wildlife-rich lake.
