August 29 | Commune with Big Trees at Federation Forest State Park

Join the Seattle Polly Dyer Cascadia Broadband for a trip to  The Federation Forest State Park.

This State Park is one of the last stands of significant old growth left in the White River Valley with some trees more than 1,000 years old. A native plant garden surrounds the park’s interpretive center named for Catherine T. Montgomery, a noted backpacker, teacher and conservationist credited with being the first to envision the Pacific Crest Trail in 1926. The Washington State chapter of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs has worked for decades to preserve this forest. There are a total of 12 miles of easy to moderate hiking trails that are small loops as well as picnic shelters and restrooms.

Meet at Barbara Phalen’s house at 9:30 AM to carpool
3425 SE 5th St
Renton, WA

Federation State Park is approximately 1 hours drive from Barbara’s house

Bring lunch and water and hiking poles if needed. Bring a Discover Pass if you have one and are driving.
