Upper Dungeness River

Upper Dungeness River Professional Review and Guide

"A delightful easy hike through ancient timber along the crystal-clear Dungeness River, this trail is ideal for introducing neophytes and youngsters to the backcountry. It’s perfect for overcast days too. The handy dandy Camp Handy Shelter provides cover on rainy days, allowing you to enjoy your lunch while droplets run down its cedar shingles.

Upper Dungeness Trail No. 833.2 begins beside the tumbling and crashing river, never letting it out of eyesight or earshot for the entire journey to Camp Handy. The trail is well sheltered by magnificent Douglas-firs that are 200 feet tall and several hundred years old."
