South Breitenbush Gorge

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Start of the scramble trail leading down to the gorge(cfm)
The roiling gorge (cfm)


For 300 feet, the South Fork Breitenbush River plunges through a dark, sinuous cleft among mossy boulders in deep woods. A steep trail leads down to the river. Massive logs span the chasm and ferns hang dripping from the walls. Reach it via a short scramble trail that begins with two parallel cut logs adjacent to a large cedar.
