Great Botanical Sites

Here’s a list of what I think are some of the best accessible botanical sites in the Western Cascades. The roads are drivable in a passenger car (most years), and the hikes are no more than 8 miles round trip, most considerably less. Click on a site name to get directions, a plant list, and other information about the location (I’m still in the process of adding these).
