Highlight: Rattlesnake Spring
This area at the foothills of the central cascades is one of the best places in Washington to really experience the outdoors. Aside from four-wheeling, this area is popular for camping, bird watching, hiking, horseback riding, off-road vehicle riding, mountain biking, snowmobiling, hunting, and general sightseeing. Because this area gets less rain than its western counterpart and has occasional forest fires, there are lots of trails and camping opportunities as a result of the relatively brushless and open nature of this forest. This short but impressive trail takes drivers down through the forest to a beautiful meadow and Rattlesnake Spring. It then follows Rattlesnake Creek [River] and loops back up to the starting point. You can expect some mud, rocks, and ruts as the trail winds smoothly through the forest.
