Perspective on the Green River Gorge

The Green River flows from Washington’s Cascade Mountains for 65 miles becoming the Duwamish River before emptying into Puget Sound.

There are many places to enjoy the river but my favorite is from the one-lane bridge over the Green River Gorge.

You get a different perspective of the Gorge from below, if you’re willing to pay the $5 to walk the rickety stairs to the waterfall which we did last year.

It was five dollars well spent, don’t you think?

  2. That’s quite the bridge! The gorge is so beautiful, I’d take the walk down there. For five bucks a pop, the steps should be in better condition though?

    • An old ramshackle resort sits near the bridge and still manages the stairs down to the waterfall. I suspect there are other paths you could take down on public property but they likely are steep and even more dangerous than the stairs!

  3. Wow, your pictures take my breath away, Susanne! What a gorgeous place. I went to WA many times, but never saw this amazing place. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! It’s one of those hidden treasures off the beaten path that few people seem to know about! πŸ™‚

      • It would take years of exploring to see all the beautiful places in WA. And then you wouldn’t have time to go back to the favorites. πŸ™‚

      • So true! I have my favorite spots, nearby and further afield and I tend to visit them again and again. This is one of those nearby.

  4. Wow, that’s a long way up…or down, depending on where you are. Don’t think I’d trust those steps!!

    • It wasn’t that bad but the stairs were definitely rickety. You can hike down other places but it’s also steep. Mostly young people go down there to swim in the summer time. Can be dangerous for sure.

    • Thanks Pete. Fortunately this isn’t far from where we live, just over 30 minutes. We go by a few times a year, but only took the stairs down last year. Beautiful river, falls and polished rock. Younger people hang out and swim in the pools during the summer.. You can also hike down from other locations but probably more dangerous.
