Although volunteer-led Land Trust walks and hikes are on a hiatus, you can still get out and explore your protected lands on your own. Here are some ideas for Indian Ford Meadow Preserve:

Take in the sunset: With incredible views of the Cascade mountains, Indian Ford Meadow Preserve is a fantastic place to stroll and enjoy the sunset. Watch the skies change from brilliant blue to inky black and observe the beauty of the changing light.

Relax and unwind: The 1-mile Founder's Trail is a perfect chance to relax and unwind as you gaze up at the mountains, spot wildflowers in the meadow, and wander near Indian Ford Creek. Unwind even further by trying out walking meditation as you pass through Ponderosa pines swaying in the breeze.

Learn more about the area's history: At the Preserve's kiosk, you can learn more about the history of Indian Ford Meadow Preserve as a gathering place. Contemplate what this meant in the past and what gathering places mean today.

The iconic views at Indian Ford Meadow Preserve make it a great place to enjoy nature. Find driving directions, trail maps, and more detailed Preserve information.
