The 425-acre Dosewallips State Park, well-known for family-friendly camping and great shell fishing on Hood Canal, offers good hiking too, unbeknownst to many visitors. Over 5 miles of trail lead along the Dosewallips River, crossing tumbling creeks and traversing quiet stands of tall timber. Relics of the area’s bygone logging days add historical perspective to peaceful rambling. Hike through a forest of cedars, cottonwoods, and of course maples, both big-leaf and vine. In fall, the canopy is a radiant gold. Dosewallips State Park’s campground, complete with platform tents and cabins, makes a good base for exploring nearby Olympic National Park and Forest.
