Default Rhododendron Flats -Manning Park West June 19/20

Rhododendron Flats, which is 1 km east of Sumallo Grove (Skagit Valley) in Manning Park was the 3rd stop of the day. I have passed by this one many times in the last several years but never checked it out. Driving by now you can see the pink flowered Rhododendron Bushes along the highway as you head east ... at the end of the day our way home from the 3-Falls Hike, we decided to enter.

It is a twenty minute loop hike on mostly flat ground, circling through pine and some fir. Trail length perhaps 500 meters..... Bushes look old and some are 10 feet and more in height. Photos tell the story.

I always wondered about this trail.
To be honest, it looks better than I thought it would be. Looks like a really nice walk

Yes it is a pretty loop trail; almost flat and completes in 20 minutes, with the stops and photo taking.
