Pend Oreille County Park 2013-05-25
2013-05-25 04:30 for 1 hrs 40 mins (birding) 30 sightings Pend Oreille County Park (WAPOPOCPK) Newport, WA (USA) Lat,Long: 48.08010,-117.33081 Map Elevation: 2400 feet
Pend Oreille County Park consists of about 300 acres of mixed coniferous forest along US Hwy 2 about 14 miles west of Newport. Habitats include small meadows and selectively logged areas as well as closed canopy mature 2nd growth and some riparian undergrowth. The park hosts a lightly-used semi-primitive campground and a network of trails through the woods. Partly cloudy, 35F, calm. I hiked and ran the Big Loop trail clockwise from the park entrance around to the Arrowleaf Ridge trail, then took that and the Ginger's End trails back to camp.
