The weather forecast said rain all day, so we had decided to not head to the mountains to hike. Instead, we took the boys to NW Trek, which is a PNW institute, part zoo, part wildlands, part park.
In the end we had perfect weather. It was lightly cloudy, with sun out, around 70*. That really nice kind of late summer, fall is nearly here day. We took the boys to see all the animals first (which is paved pathways, but set in a wood setting).
The key is following the wooden posts with colored shapes in them and you won’t get lost….
I plan on heading back with the boys and doing the bigger loop! It is walking and jogger stroller friendly (and unpaved).
A fun way to extend a visit, it was the best of both worlds: a kid outing and a family hike 🙂
