Flaming Geyser State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Unsuspecting visitors to Flaming Geyser State Park might expect to marvel at water and steam spouting from the earth in an Old Faithful-like display. Instead, they find a tiny flame powered by a natural methane seep. While it is an interesting geological feature, most visitors quickly turn to other pleasures, such as enjoying their picnic, casting a line in one of the state’s top steelhead rivers or exploring the park’s trails.
In the Green River valley northeast of Tacoma, Flaming Geyser State Park has long been a favorite recreation spot for locals. While the little flame gets headline billing, it’s
the park’s setting on the Green River with its nearby gorge
that’s the real draw. A large, popular picnic area, river access for kayakers, rafters, and anglers, and a network of trails bring people back again and again. Each of the park’s main trails is fairly short."
