Lower Lewis River

Another one of those places you hear about

Having lived in Oregon for 20 years, you hear about all kinds of places but sometimes it takes you a little while to get there.

I know this trail as a place to go mountain biking but since I like to hike with my wife, we hiked.

It was a warm sunny Tuesday afternoon and I expected to see other people out here, but we had the place to ourselves. I think everyone was at Dog Mountain.

This is another hike with great lowland old-growth. It feels a little like the redwoods or the Olympic rainforests. I have a feeling this would be even more awesome in the fall or earlier in the spring; it’s probably good for some mid-summer swimming too.
