Hanford Reach North

Hanford Reach North Professional Review and Guide

"Since the Hanford Reach became a national monument in 2000 (see “From Manhattan Project to National Monument” sidebar), more and more hikers are discovering that what they thought would be a desolate part of the state is actually thriving with fauna and flora. Thanks to being withdrawn from the public for decades and remaining in a relatively natural state, the Hanford Reach represents one of the last large undeveloped and uncultivated parts of the Columbia Plateau. One of the driest parts of the state (annual rainfall averages 7 inches), the Hanford Reach is a harsh but fragile environment. Tread softly. And be sure you’re well prepared with ample water and sun protection."
