Lewis River Ford

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Lewis River in the spring, looking to the west bank; a ford can be made here later in the summer (bobcat)


The Lewis River here is about 85 yards wide, and a ford can be made from a cobbled bar mid-summer into fall provided there hasn't been a recent big rain. The ford connects the Speed Trail #31E with the Speed Junction Campsite on the Lewis River Trail #31. Make sure your pack is unbuckled and that you are using two trekking poles for balance (See Tips for Crossing Streams).
