Washougal River State Park

An undeveloped piece of land held by the state for a planned future park.  This site has one road running through it parallel to the Washougal River for 1.6 miles.  At the end of the road is a private cabin whose only road access is through the park.  Respect the landowner and turn back when you reach a very steep downhill slope.

Parking is at a small pullout a short distance before the gate.  The road in the park is paved for about another 800ft after the gate and then continues as a dirt road.  If you want to get down to the river, your only opportunity is a rough trail approximately 900-1000ft after the pavement ends.

    This is great short hike about a mile and half up. Lots to see along the way. Not a lot of people at least that’s been the case every time I’ve gone. I enjoyed the little water fall about half way up, you can hear it as you get close. great views of the river too. I loved that it hasn’t been super developed yet! I was also surprised that folks who live here don’t even know this place exists.
