Yearly trip to the lime kiln trail! This was my very first hike with @klitherland just days after I moved here almost 3 years ago. This year I got to do it with @eventing_clydesdale and @monson425 #hike7of52in2019 #hike7of52 #limekiln #WAexplored #PNWpups #hikingadventures #dogswhohike #packwalk #beagle #tacticalmastiff #labmix #bordercolliemix #mastiffmix #blackmouthcurrmix

The Lime Kiln Trail is a secluded hiking trail near the town of Granite Falls and is open year-round. Home to old limekilns dating back to the 1800s, It’s a moderate hike, quite popular in the area, and dogs are allowed while on-leash.
