Liberty Lake Regional Park, Liberty Lake, WA


Liberty Lake Regional Park consists of 3, 591 acres of wetlands, lake shore, montane forest and irrigated lawns. This is a photo of the lake and swimming beach. All photos were taken by me. Join me on this walk!

There is a grassy area, next to the parking area, that has a playground, picnic shelters and BBQ areas.

There are many miles of trails, including the 8.3 mile Liberty Lake Loop trail.

There is an RV site, with hook ups, as well as regular campgrounds with showers and restrooms. These are in two different areas of the park.

There are even a couple cabins to rent.

As you hike on the trails you will pass wetlands.

You will pass by several beaver dams.

Some pretty wild plants. I don’t know the name of these. If you do, please share in the comment section below.

Next to the large park, there is a 350 acre off road vehicle park with 16 miles of trails. Memorial day through Labor Day, there is a $2 per person fee for ages 6 and up. Children 5 and under are free. You can also purchase a Family season pass and non-profit rates are available, too. The campgrounds are open in a pre-season and post season, along with the summer season and reservations can be made for RV, tent and cabins online. This website has all the details:

So if you are in the area, please check it out. The park is close to Liberty Lake town, with supplies available. It isn’t far from the I-90 freeway.

Thanks for joining me on the walk and taking the time to visit my blog!

Hikes Around St. George, Utah

Years ago I lived on the Navajo reservation in NE AZ, working as a teacher. I grew very close to one of my students and kept in touch with her for awhile, then lost touch with her. I attempted to find her for years.  Finally a couple years ago, I found her on Facebook and found that she was living in St. George, Utah with her children.  I decided to go visit to see her and also to tour two resorts in that area.

As a child my family had taken a long road trip from southern AZ, all the way to Banff, Canada, and we hiked some in Zion along the way. So I decided to extend my route a little and drive north to go through Zion National Park. It is an amazing drive.  I didn’t take time to hike it that day, had planned to go back but plans fell through. There are many hikes there though, from easy to very challenging.

I did take time to hike to Johnson Arch, a little north of town.  It was a beautiful and easy hike.

There are many other places to visit and hike around St. George. What are your favorite hikes there?
