GETTING THERE: Here's how to get to Husum, Washington.

We were out here in 2012, 2013 and 2014

Pictures of the Husum Cemetery.

The trailhead is off of Indian Creek Road
Just before the first fork in the road and at the top of the rise, you'll see a
grassy turn out on the left. There's always been a car or two parked there any
time I've been there. The trail is directly across from the turn out. Hike in
about 1/4 mile and you'll see the beginning of the Weldon trail to your right.

The Weldon Wagon Trail was a wagon route built in 1911 that linked the Sanborn Rd
to the town of Husum, and was used to transport apples from the orchards. It has been
abandoned since 1923, when the apple boom slowed a bit, and there were better ways to
get apples to town than hauling them on this rugged, narrow road.

This is a fairly easy 5 mile in and out hike for anyone who is in reasonable
shape. The trail is pretty easy to follow except for the last 1/2 mile or so if there
is snow on the ground. Even still, with all of the private property barbed wire fences
in the area, it would be difficult to get hoplessly lost up here. Most of this hike
is out in the open and very exposed which surprised me. This trail ends (or begins)
at East Sanborn Road in Sanborn, Washington, which is pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
