The site of historic Fort Hoskins (1856-1865), this 128-ac Benton County Park is largely wooded and undeveloped, with an 1870s era farm house and the ruins of a schoolhouse and farm buildings. A small, seasonal wetland is near the farm house; the rest of the site is mixed grassland and forest. A 0.6 mi interpretive trail is graveled and fairly rough; another 1.2 mi loop has moderately steep grades. In spring and summer look and listen for Willow Flycatcher, Cassin’s Vireo, Hermit and MacGillivray’s Warblers, Chipping Sparrow and Purple Finch. In winter you can find Steller’s Jay, Varied Thrush, and Common Raven.
From US Hwy 20 at Wren, go N on Hwy 223 for 6.3 mi. Turn L on Hoskins Rd and go W 1.9 mi. Follow a paved turnoff to the N for 0.3 mi to a paved parking lot near the picnic shelter.
