Staff and volunteers at Rockport State Park in Washington are conducting guided hikes through the park’s old growth forest on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from December 5 through February 15.
The 670-acre park includes cedar, fir, hemlock and maple trees teeming with lichen and moss. Some of the Douglas fir trees are 250 feet tall and more than 300 years old. The hikes begin at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day. No reservations are needed, but participants will need a Discover Pass for vehicle access and parking. The park is just off the North Cascades Highway, west of the town of Rockport.
