Deep Forest Experience and Interpretive Walk at Rockport State Park
Saturday, February 13, 2016
The Deep Forest Experience hikes take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from December 5 through February 15, at Rockport State Park. The park is located just off the North Cascades Highway (Hwy 20), .06 miles west of the town of Rockport. The hikes vary in distance and time from 30 minutes to one hour or more and can be customized depending on the interest of participants. The park offers an ADA-accessible trail. Those interested in a guided hike are invited to simply show up during the hours mentioned and inquire at the park office.
State Parks and interpretive staff lead the hikes through the 670-acre park—a rare, old growth forest of ancient cedar, fir, hemlock and maple teeming with lichen and moss. Some of the Douglas-fir trees are 250 feet tall and more than 300 years old. Following the hikes, visitors can participate in a fun craft activity in the park’s Discovery Center, which also has interactive wildlife displays, books and games.
