Adjacent to the Yakima River and at 276 acres and with over 11 miles of trails, it is a large area with plenty of enjoyable plant and animal life and river habitat and scenery. This is a beautiful, wooded area that is only a stone’s throw from Richland neighborhoods. It seems much more secluded than it’s proximity to town would indicate.

At the Chamna Natural Preserve, you’ll find old-growth sagebrush that is over 8 feet tall. At times of year, the habitat seems to change within a few feet from shrub-steppe desert to lush greenery. There are several trails which wind through shadowy, lush canopy that is almost mystical.

Many thanks to TrailMeister user caroleshuh for sharing this fabulous area!

The preserve closes at 11:00 PM and opens again at dawn. No vehicles are allowed in the preserve so you can enjoy the outdoor experience without the roar of off road vehicles.
