Great place for an afternoon hike with lots of birds, even some wild turkeys! Quiet and peaceful and easy hiking for everyone in the family.
I've been going to Mac Forest for decades. There are miles of roads and trails, varied scenery and difficulty of terrain, it never feels jammed with people although there are often many cars at the trailhead. You can run/jog/hike all the trails, run your dog off leash, bike most of them or even take a horse on some. It's well... 更多
Spent a couple hours plodding up the hill to the top of Dimple Hill. Great walk, varied forest is a mix of Douglas Fir (Psuedotsuga Menziesii, Hemlock and mixed deciduous. Varied soils. Trail had mostly a crushed basalt on the surface so would be OKAY in the rain. I noticed the great work on drainage, some water bars and culverts... 更多

We housesat nearby for about a month, and we took the dog for daily walks in the forest. The extensive trail network meant we rarely hiked the same trail twice. The history of the forest is really interesting, some of the interpretive trails have signage, and the moss-covered trees in fall were just stunning! Lots of trails have trees overhead... 更多
Beautiful forest with well-kept trails. It is very large so it can be easy to get lost. There are also some really nice views.
A nice forestry place for hiking and exploring nature.Good for bird-watcher too. There are water ways that we found insects, fishes, frogs and so on. Beware of poison oats though. They can be easily be found by the trail. So always remain on trail and not wonder off.
