River Description

SEASON: November to May with rainfall

ACCESS: At Hwy 101 mile 112.6 (approximately 4 miles north of the bridge across the Humptulips), take Donkey Creek Road (FR 22) east off Highway 101. Put-in at FR 2203-030 where it ends near the river or continue past Rainbow Creek up to 2203-040. Take-out where FR 22 crosses the Humptulips on upstream river left.
 
DESCRIPTION:
This section of the West Fork of the Humptulips flows through mostly private lands as it meanders to the take out on Donkey Creek Road. Along the way, intermittent bluffs rise high above the water and during wetter periods can create a scenic backdrop as numerous small cascades tumble down to the river. Although this is a mostly flatwater stretch without much in the way of whitewater, paddlers will want to keep their eyes open for wood hazards as the unstable shoreline has a tendency to calve trees into the water.
