Luckily this section is a loop starting at the resort. Getting to our starting point on the river is a bit interesting. Approximately thirteen years ago a developer bought 4 sections of land from Plum Creek Timber. Those 4 sections of land are like four sides of a box and essentially lie between Washington State Parks land and Department of Natural Resources land. So in order to get to the river at the Jellum section of the State Park you have to walk along a chain link fence and through a gate at an old logging road. You have to cross this private ownership to get to the public land. It is convoluted and is a good example of the challenges of accessing public land in this area.
