I've mentioned in other posts that the Snoqualmie River has three forks - the North, South and Middle. They converge just north of town center at a place aptly named the Three Forks Natural Area. The 418-acre Area includes over five miles of riverfront and is located between and near large blocks of undeveloped land including Mount Si Natural Resource Conservation Area (8,041 acres), Weyerhaeuser's Snoqualmie Tree Farm (180,000 acres), the Cedar River Watershed (90,000+-acres), and the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest (1.7 million acres). It's about a 15 minute ride from my house, and is a very scenic area.
Mt. Si, standing at nearly 4200 feet, marks the Cascade foothills, and can be easily viewed from the Area.
Across the road are large rural homesteads, farms mostly devoted to raising livestock, such as horses and llamas:
A very nice place to stop the Triumph and take a few pictures:
