Walking at English Camp
“And because enjoying the outdoors is critical to supporting your mental health, you can still go for a walk or a bike ride or garden in your yard.” Governor Jay Inslee from his “Stay home, stay healthy” order.
“English Camp is good hiking spot with its upland trails to Young Hill, Bell Point loop, Westcott Bay and the Mitchell Hill network. Sunny days are optimum, but I also enjoy the fog and light rain and quiet they bring to the woodlands. You can almost hear the moss breathe.” Mike Vouri
