Mt Zion at elev. 4,100’ in the Olympic foothills is a popular hike off of Forest Road 28 and it can be triangulated from Snow Creek in the north, Deadfall to the east or the main trail from the south which could make three trips. Each route has an established trail. We chose Deadfall for our April winter-spring hike.
On the well maintained Road 28 from Quilcene or Sequim, look for the 060 spur road at 1.5 miles south of Bon Jon Pass. In another 50 yards you will see a dark opening in the forest, without a sign; that’s your trail! At the trail kiosk a few feet in we had a laugh – the last winter hiker here claimed Paris, France as home.
