I love this park. My favorite. I first went here because I was told this place is loaded with bats at night. I would say maybe 5-10 in the evening. Lots of seals and Sea Lions on the floating docks in the water. Lots of birds, oysters, eagles. You can even Kayak there. I bike here several times in the summer on the Chehalis trail.
Hiking trial to beach where a railroad trestle has created the perfect habitat for bats!
Sunsets. Blackberries. Dilapidated train track bridge. Beach. In the summertime at dusk the maternity colony of bats emerges. Go.
3 miles of walking trails in lush forest, ending at an old train trestle which now serves as seal, bird & bat habitat. Bring binoculars of you have them! WA Discover Pass required to park & unfortunately you cannot pay for a pass on site. Alternatively, park at the Chehalis Western Trail parking lot for free & walk down the road to the Conservation Area.
Very close to greenheart, this conservation are combines history kiosks of former land use with the present day beauty of the Pacific Northwest forests and shoreline. Old growth Cedars and Doug Firs, Great Blue Herons, eagles and seals are some the beautiful beings you are likely to encounter. I have a guest parking pass to share with you.
