Tapteal Greenway Spring Hike
April 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a spring hike along the Tapteal Trail near Horn Rapids! This is an easy out-and-back hike that goes partly along the Yakima River through some excellent shrub-steppe habitat. We expect to see plenty of early spring flowers such as desert parsley, prairie rocket, veiny dock, and flowering shrubs. We will also visit the Tapteal Greenway Native Plant Gardens along the way. There is something for bird watchers as well as a section of the trail goes along a marshy area with lots of trees and other great bird habitat. This trail has sandy areas so boots are recommended to keep the sand out of your shoes.
Directions: Take Hwy 240 toward Vantage to Kingsgate, turn left into Horn Rapids, then right at the “T” on River Valley Dr. Take River Valley to the end, turn right on Village Pkwy. The entrance to the trail is next to the mail boxes across from the end of Redhawk Dr.
