Hood Canal Naturalist Trails
Dee Ann Kline
This hike encompasses two beautiful trails on the South Shore of Hood Canal. We will explore the Mary E Theler Wetlands Nature Preserve in Belfair. The trail is along an old dike that bridges a tidal marsh and the Union River. Roundtrip is 3.5 miles and elevation gain is 50 feet. The second hike 8 miles away at Twanoh State Park. It is a pretty woodland hike along a creek, through a ravine and old growth forest. Roundtrip is 2.3 miles with 375 feet elevation gain. Discover pass is required for Twanoh
Those coming from North of Olympia or from the Olympic Peninsula can meet at the trailhead rather than the carpool meeting place.
