It is 4 miles to Ranier National Park, several hundred feet to Gifford Pinchot National Park, about a half hour to Mt St Helens National monument, and about 2 hours to either Portland Oregon or Seattle Washington. It is only 2 miles to the small town of Packwood which has a grocery store, gas, restaurants, etc. We have a private community owned mostly flat, maintained easy access walking trail (graded gravel) to the Cowlitz river, and across the road is entry to a forest service road that extends to literally tens of thousands of miles of forest service roads, and access to some of the worlds most pristine lakes and waterfalls. Winter brings great skiing / snow boarding at White Pass from November through May, and sometimes even cross county skiing or showshoeing right out the door of the house! Most seasons, forragers and gatherers also can be found in the forest picking the coveted morel and chantrell mushrooms, truffels, or numberous types of berries. Herds of elk are frequent visitors to the property, as they graze in the field, and bed down and forage in the mossy woods and get a drink from the the rolling Johnson creek that rolls along the property border. This is a popular destination for hunters as well, but you cannot shoot or hunt on this property. There is also some world class trout fishing in the area. There is one of the worlds largest swapmeets in the town of packwood 2 miles away twice a year (labor day, and memorial day weekends).

Getting around

It is 2 miles to Packwood, and 15 miles to Randle. There is a shuttle van that travels back and forth through the area making stops between Packwood and Centralia, but it is not limited so a car or bike is best.

Member description
We like to take a trip outside the USA at least once a year, with shorter trips closer to home more often. We are changing our lifestyle to accomodate more frequent travel.
