Located 4 miles east of Packwood, WA, the River View Trail begins on Forest Road 1270 just past "Jody's Bridge." The trail follows the Cowlitz River, offering views into the river canyon. The trail initially climbs, then takes a rolling grade as it winds through an open oldgrowth forest. The trail ends across the Cowlitz from La Wis Wis Campground, with no access across the river. This is an early and late season hiking opportunity for when the higher elevation trails are under snow.

Access Info

From Packwood, WA drive east on US-12 for 4.9 miles and take a left on 1270 and drive for .6 miles to the trailhead just past "Jody's Bridge."


07/2016: The trailhead is currently not accessible due to the loss of the bridge located on Forest Road 1270. There are no immediate plans to replace this bridge.
