Chehalis River Discovery Trail

Previous commitments kept Mr. Adventure and me close to home last weekend, but gorgeous weather beckoned. Luckily, there are plenty of lowland trails nearby that offer great midwinter hiking. We headed to the Chehalis River Discovery Trail, a 3.6-mile ramble along the river just below its confluence with the Skookumchuck River. The trail is adjacent to a working farm, and the Chehalis River Basin Land Trust has partnered with Lewis County and local schools to restore the river’s riparian habitat. It’s a favorite of birders, who’ve spotted more than 150 species spotted along the trail.
