A Washington nudist park is celebrating National Trails Day next month with a clothing optional hike.

Lake Bronson Family Nudist Park near Sultan will host the hike June 2 from 1-5 p.m. on its 320-acre forest. The park, run entirely by volunteers, has about 200 members and gets 150 to 200 additional visitors on warm weather weekends, said past president Randy Hoppenbrouwer.

“The Northwest has lots of wonderful scenery, but the one unique feature Lake Bronson offers that no one else does is that we can hike safely and legally NAKED in a beautiful, family-friendly environment,” read a statement released by the park.

The hike will be 3.5 miles along the Lake Bronson trail near the Sultan River and Marsh Creek Falls.

“The hike is scheduled for later in the day to allow the forest a chance to warm up. The guides will be nude, weather permitting, and participants are invited to also enjoy the forest au natural on this
nude hike,” the statement reads.

An orientation will take place before the hike and refreshments will be served afterward. Park entrance fees are waived for the hike.

Lake Bronson Family Nudist Park is 85 years old. Participants must register in advance and a background check will be conducted on all participants, resorts officials say, “because we are a family nudist park.”
