|The 1000 Steps Trail begins just across|
the lot from the Thunderbird Lodge.
|The steps blend perfectly with the woods,|
complimenting them rather than competing.
|You may even "off trail" as small trail runs near the overlook.|
After hiking the 1000 Steps Trail, and really being introduced to all the outstanding things to do in the park, we can't wait to return to Washington State Park. Next up with most likely be a backpacking trip through Rockywood Trail to view the quarry used by the CCC for the local buildings and a search for the elusive Missouri tarantula!
|The overlook absolutely BEGS you to take photos here!|
