Can you Find the Cascadia Rock?
Few things are more enjoyable on a sunny day than a treasure hunt among the trees! Legend has it that hidden within one of Tehaleh’s many family-friendly trails lies a monolith from days gone by; the fabled Cascadia Rock. Do you have what it takes to find it?
Starting Point: Expedition Grove
- When leaving the park, stay to the left when you come to the Y.
- Wind through the serpent bends (S curves).
- You’ll notice a small offshoot path on your right but stay on the main path. (Always stay on the main path, unless you’re looking for an imaginative adventure, then by all means explore!)
- Look to the right and you’ll soon see an opening through the trees with a peak-a-boo view of The Post.
- Keep walking and very soon there will be a void of trees on your right.
- Immediately look to your left.
- You’ll see a giant boulder that will spark your enthusiasm, however, don’t be fooled by this trickery! Wisely continue on your path.
- Look to your left once again and notice a large stone that looks as though it’s carved into the shape of a prehistoric lounge chair. If you’ve seen the “chair” and no Cascadia Rock, you’ve been duped!
- Cascadia Rock with its red, green and blue emblem is perfectly concealed between the “trickery boulder” and “lounge rock”!
- If you’ve made it to the Y in the trail that takes you to Boulder Dash you’ve gone too far! Turn around.
