We didn't go out there too long. We're not local here and not used to this hot. My little dog had problem walking in gravel road because it was too hot. I'd come back when the weather is cooling down.

Really nice easy walk. Beautiful in the Spring with everything in bloom. Trail is easy to follow and goes through areas where wildlife can normally be seen. Would go again if in the area.

We visited Cowiche Canyon Trail and took the East Uplands Trail for a nice morning hike - about 2 hours round trip. The trail begins up on the highlands/ridge, goes through a little valley, then down into the river canyon floor. The path was easy...More

The trails are not well marked so I'd recommend researching prior. We ended up parking at a different lot than we wanted to. But the walk is nice and easy. Once you get up on he hillls you get a beautiful view of the canyon....More
