The South Breitenbush Gorge National Recreation Trail (#3366) is a 2.5 mile easy to moderate trail. The sight and sound of the South Breitenbush River accompany the hiker along this scenic trail. A short side trip below the trail leads to the “Gorge,” where the river passes through a basalt narrows, 300 feet long and 3 to 10 feet wide. A picturesque wooden footbridge crosses Roaring Creek at a steep section of cascading water. The vegetation is old-growth Douglas-fir and western hemlock. There is difficult footing between the main trail and the Gorge viewpoint. Small children should be supervised around the Gorge. Trail closed to motorized travel year-round.

Directions: From Detroit: Turn onto Road 46 (Breitenbush Road) from Hwy. 22 in Detroit. Follow for 14 miles. Turn right on road 4685. Access #1 is 1/4 mile up road, across from rock pit. Access #2 is another 2 miles, past Roaring Creek. Access #3 is another 1/3 mile.

Seasonal Access: Normally Open: Early Spring-Early Winter

Facility Type: Trail
