New Year’s Day hike on Cedar Butte
Ring in the New Year with a historical hike to the top of Cedar Butte in North Bend from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan 1.
The 3-mile, 900-foot climb will be hosted by park ranger Rick Oakley and includes information on the events leading up to the Boxley Blowout — a flood that destroyed the town of Edgewick.
Hiking boots are required and trekking poles are recommended as the trail has sections that are rocky and icy this time of year.
No Discovery Pass is needed. Jan. 1 is a free day for all state parks.
The trailhead is located at Iron Horse State Park, 19500 Cedar Falls Rd SE, North Bend.
