Doug's Beach

Klickitat County, Washington

Doug's Beach State Park

Fees: WA Discover Pass

Activity: hiking

Elevation: 112'-1600'

Current status (as of 7/14/24): not blooming

Notes: The wildflowers are on the uphill side of the highway, not by the windsurfing launch site. Be sure to use a GPS-enabled map with exact property boundaries; there are no official trails, no fences or signs, and the owners of the surrounding rangeland (Schreiner Farms) are EXTREMELY unfriendly to hikers.

Peak wildflower bloom at Doug's Beach is typically from early March through April into early May, but there may be some flowers blooming from mid-February until the end of May.*
