River Description

SEASON: November to July, but not during high water.

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.

DESCRIPTION:

An extreme O.P. creek with several technical drops. Some mandatory portages.
