An Early Spring Hike on the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River

I never cease to be amazed at the beauty of Washington State. Just over an hour away past North Bend we enjoyed these vistas while hiking along the middle fork of the Snoqualmie River.

We started out on the Oxbow Loop Trail with this peek (not peak though there was that too) at the river.

Then we were surrounded by mossy green trees,

Oxbow Lake,

and the craggy peaks of the Cascades.

What more can I say about an easy, flat, two-mile hike through the forest with river and mountain views?

Only that we’ll be back.

And there are many hikes to choose from on the Middle Fork, as Bob seeks to find the best access to the river to fish.

In fact, we’ve already returned since we took this hike at the end of March. I have pictures from last week’s hike to Camp Brown on the warmest day of the year.

But I’ll save that for later.

  1. I love that this is a gorgeous hike whether the sun is shining brightly or not…nature has delivered a year round wonderland!

  2. I live in NW Oregon but usually never consider Washington as a place to hike. Something agout that state line that creates a psychological barrier. It’s really not THAT FAR! I’m going to take you up on some of your suggestions and head over the Columbia River!

    • I know what you mean! There are so many wonderful places to hike in Washington, you might as well get started! Would make for a nice couple of days away, like we enjoy when we venture south to your beautiful state! 🙂

  3. What a fabulous walk – just the right length for me and with those amazing views! Anther thing we missed doing/seeing in WA but in three weeks we couldn’t do it all I guess. So thank you for this virtual walk instead 🙂

    • Thanks, Sarah! It was a perfect walk indeed, and there are many more like it in the area! I’m glad you could enjoy it virtually! 😊 You did our state justice with a 3 week visit, but there’s no way to see it all, even if you live here!
