The Middle Fork Snoqualmie River valley gives us hope. Once a wasteland of illegal trash dumping, rampant gunplay, and illicit drug manufacturing (and use), this area is now a premiere recreation destination. The Bessemer Mountain route is one of the valley’s great success stories. On this old roadway built by folks eager to extract as much of the area’s natural resources as possible, you’ll discover that the greatest resource remains—the power of nature to heal itself. You’ll explore fantastic mixed-age, diverse second-growth forests. You’ll gawk at awesome views. And if you’re lucky, you’ll see and/or hear some of the native wildlife whose populations have rebounded.
