Enjoy wandering in this great ravine, where deciduous woods predominate. There is a madrona grove at the parks south end. A nice view of the water, but there is no beach access from Seola Park.

Acreage: 8.8


The pioneer settlers in this area were loggers, cattlemen, and farmers. The forest in the area produced timber of exceptional quality, which is just what the shipyards needed for masts. The loggers developed two skid roads and a wall for the oxen used to skid the logs. One road began on the hill (2oth and Roxbury) down past the cranberry bog that was the headwaters of Longfellow Creek, then down the ravine.
