Bogachiel River State Park Trail

Bogachiel River State Park Trail Professional Review and Guide

"An elk-groomed rain-forest river valley offers families all of the primitive magic of the Hoh area, without the crowds. Huge, moss-shrouded second-growth maples and alders lean over the trail, then give way to even more beautiful old-growth forest pruned by resident herds of elk.

As the elk lose more habitat to logging, they clip ever more diligently any wayward buttercup, salmonberry, sword fern, thimbleberry, or devil’s club. The groomed, park-like result would make a British garden club gasp. There will be more elk tracks on the trail than people tracks. Have kids guess the size of the animals from the tracks."
