Day Hike - Guillemot Cove

This kids-and-families day trip takes us through an undeveloped, forested county park leading to the shoreline on the Hood Canal. Weather permitting, we'll have views of the Olympics, and we'll have an opportunity to explore the Stump House. A red cedar has been hollowed out and fitted with a door, window openings, and a roof, this is a fantastic photo op spot!
