There are two trailheads. The first (mapped above) is just off NE Third Avenue in Camus. Coming from the West the entrance is on your left hand side as the road dips down, just before a bridge – if you get as far as SE Crown Road you’ve gone too far. That’s OK though, as at least there’s a (small) sign coming from the East.
You can find the second trailhead by turning left off Third Ave onto Garfield opposite Safeway. Garfield turns into 14th Ave, then you’ll turn right onto Everett. Follow Everett to the edge of town where you’ll find the Lacamas Park parking lot on the right.
With this sublime showcase of Northwestern scenery, sleepy Camus throws down the gauntlet to Tryon Creek as a one of the most beautiful and approachable hiking destinations on our doorstep. In addition to forested trails, the park has a lake, some rapids, a waterfall and fields of lilies. There’s also a children’s playground and bathrooms at the North end.
