The East Fork Lewis River has developed a nasty reputation over the years- several good paddlers and a few anglers have drowned in its treacherous waters. Resistant basalt rock has formed ledges and waterfalls in many locations along the upper river. Old-growth cedar and other evergreen trees line the banks, creating serious log hazards. The rural surroundings are spotted with houses below Sunset Falls and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest boundary, but these do not intrude on the river experience.
