Historical and fun to watch. That's about it. Best in nice weather. No real parking available. It is on a main highway.

The Dalby Water Wheel is cool, and perfectly appropriate for the walk between AlderBrook and the deli/pub nearby, but it's not something I would recommend as a primary destination, because there's not much to do other than take a couple of photos, read both signs,...More

The water wheel is a great little stop, particularly on the walk to dinner. A good historical sign tells the story, which is quite good (I won't spoil it...) . The building is open on occasion, but not during our stop. A great example of...More

The Old Dalby Waterwheel sure brings back childhood memories of my families Hood Canal days. Thank goodness someone had the sense to preserve this piece of Hood Canal history.

Although we read about it on TripAdvisor, we were pleasantly surprised to find it on the side of the road with easy access for picture taking. Very quaint, has a lot of history and makes for a great picture. Don't miss it.

This is pretty much a wide spot on the road, but we were glad we stopped to admire this photogenic water wheel. A deer came out to visit us while we were there. Please note there isn't much parking.

Located across the street from the Alderbrook, this water wheel has a long and interesting history. I wouldn't travel long distances to see it, but stop by if you're in the area.
