    We didn't go out there too long. We're not local here and not used to this hot. My little dog had problem walking in gravel road because it was too hot. I'd come back when the weather is cooling down.  more »

    Morning hikes before it gets hot is perfect for us! It's very beautiful and leisurely. You can make it as hard or as easy as you like.  more »

    This area is a nice little hike that can easily be accessed from in town Yakima. It is beautiful in spring and fall, but can get blazing hot in the summer! We have seen rattlesnakes a few times hiding...  more »

    A local treasure. Nature at it's best. Some parts are an old railroad right-of-way. Some parts are easy, others are more difficult. Several places to begin and end.

    Awesome hiking, many route options, not too crowded. Beautiful Canyon, the Gem of Yakima.

    This place once had a railway transverse through it, now it's a pathway which can be used by hikers, horses, and bicyclists. There is the main canyon trail that meanders through it along the creek and the uplands that loop and crisscross one another. The lower/canyon trail is more popular and young family friendly. Bicyclists will find more of a challenge with the uplands. Bicycles and equines are limited to dry weather for tail preservation. Parking located in 3 different areas.
