South Slough Bridge

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The South Slough Bridge, Netul River Trail (bobcat)


This footbridge crosses the exit channel of the South Slough into the Lewis and Clark River. In the 19th century, farmers drained the wetland, built a dike, and installed a tide gate to convert the land to pasture. In 2007, the footbridge and adjacent road bridge replaced the tide gate, and in 2012, the National Park Service excavated channels in the wetland to facilitate the return of spawning salmon and steelhead.
