The long, looping stretch of the Chehalis offers excellent paddling on a clear-water river with numerous gravel bars for fishing, picnicking, or camping. For the most part it flows through private property, so be sure to camp below mean high water level or obtain permission from the local landowner. An easy river flowing through a broad valley, this segment provides good fishing as well as occasional views of distant mountains and nearer, forested (and clear-cut) hillsides. Several of its tributaries can also be canoed.
