Old Sauk Trail 728

Wind through remnant old growth, mature second growth and young riparian forest on this mossy trail as it follows the Sauk River. The addition of a new barrier-free loop trail, accessed from a second parking area, make this a good choice for hikers of all abilities. Watch birds, view salmon and discover wildlife tracks on this enjoyable outing.
