Douglas Creek Canyon–North Professional Review and Guide

"Douglas Creek carves through the bottom of a deep, foliage-rich canyon in the heart of Washington’s central plains. The views of the deep canyon are spectacular, and the stark rock walls and structures provide fascinating lessons in geology.

The floor of the canyon is a veritable natural garden, blanketed as it is with wild rose, serviceberry, desert parsley, desert lupine, arrowleaf balsamroot, and— towering overhead—ancient hawthorn trees. Within this garden roams and flies an array of wildlife. Mule deer, coyotes, and rattlesnakes seem to be the most common creatures in the valley, except for the canyon with song, and raptors dance aloft on the thermals. Head up the rough dirt road, crossing through the gate to head into the northern reach of Douglas Creek Canyon."
