LOGISTICS: At Highway 101 mile 317.9 Take FR 25 (Hamma Hamma Road) as it runs west into the National Forest. Head up this road past Hamma Hamma Campground. Contine on FR 25 as it winds along the river to a take-out at Lena Creek (or find a spot anywhere along here between the two campgrounds). The put-in is another 5 miles or so up the road where you can find river access. The road will likely be snowed in through the winter. Check road reports under Recereation, Current Conditions, Hood Canal South, on the USFS Olympic National Forest web site.

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.
