The hike: This is going to be a fun, quick hike up toward Blewett Pass. Camas Meadows is home to a number of unique plant species and a few endangered birds. Lush wetlands, flowers, and views out toward the Cascades all await us! For more information visit the WTA website.
Want to come along? Let us know! On hike day meet us at 9:00 am at the Park-n-Ride in Olds Station on the NE corner of Hwy 2 and Easy Street. Bring water, snacks/lunch, sunscreen and bug repellent. We expect to be back at the Park-n-Ride before 1:00. I have been informed that parking is limited at the trailhead, so we will definitely need to carpool. Those who drive will need a Discovery Pass!
