Find your inner forest spirit among the rare old-growth stands of Rockport State Park.

The park's ancient trees, having never been logged, form a landscape and ecosystem seldom seen nowadays, a canopy of towering evergreens so dense that minimal sunlight shines through.

Breathe in the crisp smell of conifers and feel the earth beneath your feet, then look up and marvel at the Rockport giants, some more than 250 feet tall. Check out the Discovery Center, which is open most weekends throughout the year, and ask about guided ranger walks.

Wind your way down the loamy trail to the Skagit River Overlook, or try the steeper Sauk Mountain Trail on adjacent U.S. Forest Service land. This park has a trail for every ability level, including the wheelchair-friendly, ADA-compliant West Loop Interpretive Trail, which meanders for a mile through immense stands of old-growth trees and lush vegetation.

The campground, closed due to tree-fall hazards, is an excellent place to picnic and teach kids to ride bikes. Camping is available at nearby Rasar State Park.
