This day hike or backpack follows the last remaining primitive section of the Lewis River in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Along the way you’ll pass through grand old-growth forest of stately Douglas fir, western hemlock, and western red cedar, always within sight or sound of the rushing river. Two trailheads offer the option of either doing a shorter 5.4-mile out-and-back hike or a longer 9.4-mile one-way trip by leaving a car at the upper trailhead.
