So this weekend, my boyfriend Kolani and I explored the great outdoors and hiked Heybrook Lookout, and even saw Eagle Falls!
Here’s the link to the vlog: https://youtu.be/JzXkwjIGa3Q
Anywho, I thought I would post on here and give a quick little review about our experience. First of all, one of the best parts about the hike was the fact that we had gotten there so early. We arrived at 9:30 am, and overall, (with rest breaks included) the hike took us an hour to complete. Since we had gotten there so early on a Saturday morning, we only passed two couples the entire hike. The beginning is a little steep, so be ready for that, but the hike is smooth with hardly and jagged rocks up until the end right before the look out.
Once you get to the top of the hill, you can see a little bit of a view, but there is a tower with several flights of stairs to climb to get the ultimate view. This part was a little tricky for Kolani and I because we’re both afraid of heights. So keep in mind if heights make you woozy, be warned, do not look down. But once you’re up there, you get a breath taking view of Washington. Trees, mountains, a cool summer breeze and not sound except birds chirping in the distance. It really was quite breathtaking.
After the hike, we drove up the road about two minutes and found Eagle Falls. (Unfortunately I don’t have pictures, but you can check out the vlog for footage). The water is beautiful, but again I would have to recommend getting there early and beating the crowd, it would have been much more enjoyable if it were a little more empty. I dipped my toes in and let me tell you, that is some cold glacier water. But nothing beats a sunny day in washington.
