Goodman Creek, Washington, US
|Usual Difficulty||III+(V) (for normal flows)|
|Avg. Gradient||145 fpm|
FUN FACT: An alternative put-in for the Soleduck.
SEASON: Winter rain storms. Generally best when rivers are moderately high.
ACCESS: From Highway 101 mile 216.4 turn south on FR 2918. Follow this road to mile 3.6 (you'll cross the Soleduck at mile 3.0) and turn up to the right on FR 2931. Continue 0.7 miles to the berm at the old spur 100 road. You're somewhat on your own to hike down the road and find the creek.
This is an alternative put-in for a run on the Soleduck. If you find the spot described in Korb's book the run starts with a class IV, then a V, and settles out to continuous class III for the short ride to the Soleduck. You'll enter the Soleduck a short distance downstream from the put-in for the FR 2918 Bridge to Klahowya Campground section.
