Here is a good low elevation hike or bike ride on a private tree farm that allows non-motorized public access. Abernathy Mountain had 4 lookouts over the years. Right now, the summit has been harvested so it's a good time to visit. Bring something to entertain yourself for the approach, it's long but easy. Many mountain bike trails are available for the way down.
I remember deer hunting (late October) in this area many years ago in an area with second growth fir trees about 15-20 ft high. Flocks of Canadian geese were flying south at a rather low elevation, possibly because of the low clouds and mist. But what caught my attention were the many Robins flying south, many stopping to rest on the tops of the Douglas fir trees. I have not seen such a mass Robin migration flying south since. My Dad had a friend who worked for the Wash State Dept of Natural Resources and the DNR guy had keys to many or all of the logging company gates and the DNR guy and my Dad patrolled many of the inaccessible roads in Cowlitz County.
