This short hike goes through old-growth forest, with 500 ft of elevation gain, to a series of waterfalls. It's a Naturalist hike, focusing on ferns, mosses, lichens, and liverworts… and takiing note of what all of those other evergreen plants look like in late winter/early spring. Many are recognizable even without flowers. The falls may be dramatic as well.

I'll try to arrange carpooling meet-ups by email, depending on particpants.

Bring a pack with a lunch, snacks, water, warm clothing, and rain gear. Wear good hiking foot wear (no tennis shoes). We will be stopping often to look at whatever plants, etc. we find interesting. Also bring your "Plants of the Pacific Northwest" by Pojar and MacKinnon, hand lens (if you have them), and your curiousity. We should be back at the cars by no later than 2 pm.
