Yakima Sportsman State Park is a 247 acre park on the floodplain of the Yakima River. With two miles of hiking trails, it's a great place to explore if you happen to be camping nearby.

The mostly level trails loop around and into each other through cottonwoods, elm, and willow tress. Visit in the autumn, when these deciduous trees are vivid with the reds, oranges, and yellows of a crisp fall day.

The trails are well marked with maps at each intersection, and fishing is allowed year-round in the juvenile fishing pond where you may glimpse wood ducks. Mallards, geese, cinnamon teal, red-winged blackbirds, and hawks are also visible here - a real birdwatcher's haven.

Look for evidence of beaver activity, and in spring, keep an eye out for wildflowers.
