Scablands waterfalls primed for hiking into wet landscape

Lowland snow and ice is waving goodbye to winter, leaving Eastern Washington squishing with water.

This is prime time for a trek to absorb the power of a scablands waterfall.

Hikers champing at the bit to ditch their skis and snowshoes for a chance to smell sprouting greenery will find many trails still too wet for walking without sloshing or sinking in mud.

But several waterfall-viewing treks are ripe for visiting now. We’ve checked them out, and most of the puddles, pools and seasonal wetlands can be avoided with a few low-impact detours.

Expect to see migrating waterfowl – our wet world is their playground right now.
