Day Hike - Sequalitchew Canyon & Edmond Marsh

Join me in exploring one of Pierce County’s lesser know natural areas. We will cross over Edmond Marsh on an old railroad causeway before following the railroad grade down a peaceful woodland trail through Sequalitchew Canyon to reach a pebbled beach on the shores of Puget Sound.
