if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The beautiful Central Cascade Range scenery is an added bonus.

Briefly about the general area:
Hotel Spring is an inspiring place to stop by during your stay, and if the weather is glorious, you can go for a hike along the Mayflower Trail. Just can't get enough of the Central Cascade Range. Don't leave Brice Creek without first paying a visit to Smith Falls; the Steamboat Trail is a great hiking trail close by. This river is so good.
