Ohanapecosh is located in the southeast corner of the park, situated among Douglas firs, western red cedars, and western hemlocks. Visitors can experience the beauty and complexity of an old-growth forest at Ohanapecosh. You’ll become well acquainted with your loppers, shovels and Pulaskis as you work on the East Side Trail near the amazing Grove of the Patriarchs. We need to do a lot of tread repair on this trail.

Driving directions:
We will be meeting just west of the Stevens Canyon Entrance Station at the trailhead for the Grove of the Patriarchs and the East Side trail.

From Enumclaw, drive east about 47 miles on State Route 410 to the junction with SR 123 at Cayuse Pass. Stay right (straight ahead) to merge onto SR 123-Cayuse Pass Highway. Drive south about 11.5 miles to the junction with the Stevens Canyon Road. Turn right and pass through the Stevens Canyon Entrance Station and within 0.3 miles find the trailhead on your right.

From the south, drive US 12 about 8 miles east of Packwood to the junction with SR 123. Turn north on SR 123 and continue 5.4 miles to the junction with the Stevens Canyon Road. Turn left and pass through the Stevens Canyon Entrance Station and within 0.3 miles find the trailhead on your right.

If the entrance station is occupied tell them you are volunteering on a trails project and they will let you through without having to pay.
