A fully accessible .5 mile (.8 kilometer) boardwalked and paved trail travels into the heart of an old growth forest. Scents and sounds of the forest permeate the air, and in some places the trail brings the visitor close enough to touch the bark and needles of the ancient conifers. Accessible parking, toilet, curb ramp, benches, and interpretive signs available. A Northwest Forest Pass is required at this trailhead.
