Winter at Hood Canal

Winter days at Hood Canal can be cold and clear, making for wonderful hiking.  The summer crowds are gone and the local elk can often be seen.

On the flip side, winter storms come through whipping up whitecaps on Hood Canal and sometimes hammering us with rain.  This is a great time for inside home projects, like Artfully Organizing your Bookshelf.  When you are done with that, put you feet up and enjoy a good book…

Winter at Hood Canal

Rocky Brook Falls in winterHiking in the winter at Hood Canal offers hikers spectacular views on crisp, sunny days from the trails of Mt Zion, Mt Townsend, Mt Walker, and Mt Ellinor.

But even cloudy, misty days offer the benefit of less people and choosing hikes with waterfalls and moss covered trees: Dosewallips River hike, Steam Donkey trail, Murhut Falls, Lena Lake, and Staircase.

Use the hiking guide at wta.org and choose the east Olympics region for more hiking options.
