To Douglas Falls We Go

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” ― John Muir, The Mountains of California

A video of a short hike I led yesterday to Douglas Falls.  On the drive up to the trailhead for Douglas Falls, we pulled over to see Walker Falls.

This spectacular, 70' falls is located in an old-growth forest. You'll walk a gently sloped trail to the base of the falls. The hike is marked by change; though the hemlocks in the area are dead, you'll travel through an otherwise beautiful woods and discover pleasant forest scenes along the way. Enjoy the falls from in front and from behind! The drive to the falls is an experience of its own, and along the way you'll pass many more scenic and interesting features.  Source
