Barr Creek, also known as Swift Creek, flows from Sauk Lake across the northwest corner of the property. Less than a mile from the parking area, the Hegg - Benson trail leads up through deciduous forests to Barr Creek where bedrock geology creates cascading pools and waterfalls.
The Hegg-Benson Trail, designed and constructed by Skagit Land Trust members and volunteers in 2009-2010, provides a short walk into this lovely conservation area. Before it gets busy in the summer, this trail needs a little TLC! Join us with some light trail clearing, sign installation and overall maintenance work in this beautiful area. SLT will provide tools and training. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
