Grove of the Patriarchs Professional Review and Guide

"This short interpretive hike crosses the Ohanapecosh River by way of suspension bridge and takes you to a magnificent old-growth forest with thousand-year-old trees.

The trail is very well maintained but often muddy, due to its low elevation and proximity to the Ohanapecosh River. Wear your hiking boots, and remember to step through the mud instead of around it to avoid widening the trails. Interpretive signs line the trail, helping you discern differences between the western hemlock, Douglas-fir, and western red cedar. This is a great trail to take if you are interested in learning more about the life cycles and species of old-growth forests."
