Join me for another new trip to me at the Ueland Tree Farm in Bremerton. This trip features the lovely Dickerson Falls. There have been reports of an upper and lower falls so let's check them out together. Expect the waterfall trail to be muddy and slippery.

After visiting the falls, we will make our way to Zach's Lookout which is the highest point on the hike with sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains and the Hood Canal on a clear day.

I will be hiking with a weighted pack and welcome anyone that would like to join along on this weighted weekend trip.

This is an active forest where logging is allowed. Wear bright colors to maintain visibility.
