There are trails for every level of ability that explore lush forest, home to a diverse variety of birds, mammals, and plants. Discover a gorge and Agate Beach with a rocky shoreline that reveals the regions volcanic and ice age past. While here, admire the extraordinary craftsmanship of rock walls such as “Castle in the Park” wall, fireplaces, and other structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. There is a self-guided tour map to learn about and see them all. Stop at the Joseph N. Alexander Visitor Center for information, interpretive displays, and nature shop.
