“popular starting point for trail runners and mountain bikers”

Lewisburg Saddle access gives direct access to the higher elevations of the State Forest. A short walk in either direction from the saddle during April or May can yield Olive-sided, Hammond's and Pacific-slope Flycatchers, Hermit, Black-throated Gray, Wilson's and MacGillivray's Warblers, as well as Band-tailed Pigeon, Evening Grosbeak, and Pileated and Hairy Woodpeckers. A stand of old-growth forest is reached by bearing L when the road branches just E of the saddle parking area, and walking 0.4 mi NE. In winter Gray Jay is sometimes seen in this area; you may want to bring skis or snowshoes in some years! From Hwy 99W turn W at stoplight onto Lewisburg Rd. Go W 1.4 mi and bear R at fork onto Sulphur Springs Rd. Follow uphill 1.5 mi and park in roadside parking in topographic saddle at top of ridge. From here walk or bicycle along forest roads on either side of main road.
