South Breitenbush Gorge Trail #3366


The sight and sound of the South Breitenbush River along with older Douglas-fir and Western Hemlock forest settings accompany the hiker along this historic scenic trail.

A short side trip below the trail leads to the "Gorge," where the river passes through a 300 foot long basalt narrows. Watch for difficult footing between the main trail and the Gorge viewpoint.

A picturesque log footbridge crosses Roaring Creek at a steep section of cascading water.
