Grove of the Patriarchs Trail

Grove of the Patriarchs Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This short interpretive hike takes you through magnificent old-growth forest. 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."
