Description: Walk the town where Kurt Cobain spent early years. Choose from multiple distances and a variety of sights: a peaceful walk along multiple city parks and the Grays Harbor waterfront; through town with outstanding murals and quirky artwork; moderate stair and hill climbs to see old "timber baron" homes, then on up for breath-taking views of Grays Harbor from hill-tops, with the possibility of a glimpse of Mt. Rainier on a clear day. Descend down to various levels of the city via several sets of "secret stairs".
