Sequalitchew Canyon & Dupont Bluff


Day Hike - Sequalitchew Canyon & Edmond Marsh

Join me for a “History Hike”. We will explore one of Pierce County’s lesser know but most historic natural areas. We will cross over Edmond Marsh on an old railroad causeway before following the railroad grade down a woodland trail to a pebbled beach on the shores of Puget Sound. Along the way we will discuss the rich history of this location.
