River Description


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.

DESCRIPTION:

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.

Gage Descriptions

There is an old USGS gauging station (stn. 12041500, 1917-1980) on the Soleduck with an intact staff gauge just below the confluence of the South Fork, North Fork, and mainstem. It's a bit out of the way for this run (check the Upper Soleduck description for directions on finding it). Look for flows around 4.0 feet on this staff gauge. For those trying to assess the run from a remote location check the Hoh River gauge (look for it to be up above 4000).

Addressing Road Problems in Olympic National Forest (WA)

1/18/2003
Thomas O'Keefe

The extensive road network in Olympic National Forest has deteriorated over the last few years with the reduction in logging intensity and corresponding lack of routine maintenance. The road failures have resulted in destruction of aquatic habitat and reduced access. Repair work and decommissioning has begun with the introduction of a new road management plan in fall 2002.
