While visiting Mossyrock you may want to buy some blueberries from a local farm and visit the flower fields and show garden at the DeGoede Bulb Farm. Better yet, make your visit part of a longer trip staying at one of the hotels or camp grounds along the beautiful White Pass Scenic By-Way stretching from I-5 south of Chehalis to Naches along US 12.
