Kettle Pond

Description: 

This is an interesting walk that begins along a medial glacial moraine consisting of ‘till’ and giant boulders which were left behind between two lobes of a glacier that retreated at the end of the ice age. The trail then meanders downhill to a unique glacial depression called a "kettle" pond. There are ancient Douglas-Firs\, orchids and water lilies to look for. The large boulder at the parking lot is an erratic left behind by the glacier. It split just a few years ago. If it’s cloudy down valley it just may be sunny up here.
