This hike begins at the Ponderosa I-3 parking area at Lewisville Park in Battleground, Wash. We will begin by crossing a bridge onto a river trail that leads to the park entrance and a grassy area to check out the unique birdhouses. Then we will follow a 12- to 15-foot-wide forest trail with rolling hills and many types of edible berries (be careful not to touch any stinging nettle plants). After 1½ miles, we will descend steeply from the forest trail to a paved path that parallels the Lewis River. Along the way, look for pygmy rabbits and Steller's Jays/ We will gather near the river to eat our lunch (restrooms available). Following lunch we will continue on a natural trail to see the rapids and then head back to our cars.

Bring water, snacks, and a sack lunch. Sturdy hiking shoes/boots are needed.
