Explore the Cedar Grist Mill

Washington Cedar Grist Mill

Added by Austin Jackson

This is an extremely photogenic old mill that looks great any season of the year and is easily accessible.

After parking in the lot near the mill, walk across the bridge. This is the first good viewpoint for photography. Next, I recommend walking under the bridge, this is my favorite spot for taking photos. The whole area is free to walk around, you can even walk in the mill and then walk up stream down the side. Feel free to adventure and take pictures wherever you see fit!

How to Get There

Underwhelmed

This place is definitely a lot prettier in photographs than in person. I was really excited about this stop on our road trip from Washington to Oregon, but this spot was really underwhelming to me. Hindsight 20/20, I probably would have gone somewhere else.

Nice little photo spot

I know this place is stunning in the fall but it was still beautiful in the Spring. I visited on a quiet Sunday evening and had the area around the mill to myself. There's a number of options for different or interesting perspectives than the traditional shot, so take some time to explore. I walked further down the stream and ended up meeting a scientist named Josh doing fish population studies for Washington Fish & Wildlife, it was pretty interesting to learn about.

Nice Little Adventure

You could not ask for a more easily accessible location (parking is limited) that offers such great photo opportunities. You will pass through a covered bridge to get to the small parking area on the left hand side.

A place I plan to visit

This has been on to-do list for a while. I plan to visit this location when I get back in the area. Because it's so close to the parking lot, there isn't a whole lot of adventure. But that's OK. I really don't care how I get to a particular spot -- as long as I get there.
