This is an interesting spot from where you can see the remains of the dam that used to be across the entrance to the canyon. It was built in 1927, but was removed in 2011 because of the damage caused downstream. The area of the old dam is still recovering. There are a number of information boards about the history and removal of the dam as well as the fish found in the area.

Drive along the river & stop to see where the dam once was. Then continue onto Whiskey Bend Rd. This is a one lane dirt road. There are several turn out areas if you meet on coming cars, but several of these areas are on a cliff, no edge to the road, a little nerve wrecking. We did see a bobcat run across the road into the woods. At the end of the road is parking, picnic area & restrooms. Go early & you may not have any traffic. We went to the "Overlook" loop & it was a waste of time & energy. This loops back onto the trail but very steep & not much to see from all the trees growing up. There's actually a better place to look out on down the trail by large rocks. Then continue hiking till you come to Micheal's cabin. Very interesting, you can go inside. But beware, there are bats in here. There's a loft & we think that's where they're staying. We also saw several deer close to the house. We were told to do this trail & given a paper all about the cabin from the Olympic National Park visitors center.

As you take the road along the Elwah River, you'll come upon an overlook where a dam once stood forming Lake Mills. A few years ago, the dam was removed restoring a free flowing Elwah River. You can actually walk out on a remaining portion of the dam and view this glacial river and how nature is taking its course. You'll find considerable information on the history of the area, the wildlife, and how the fish are making a comeback.

The old Glines Canyon Dam site on the Elwha River is a must see if you are in Olympic National Park. The river now runs freely for the first time in almost 100 years. We took a hike with a ranger who went over the history and restoration efforts. It was one of the high points of our visit to ONP.

This river has been restored! The dam down and the completion of removal scheduled for Sept 2014. The fish are spawning once again.
We walk through the ancient old growth cedar grandfathers and grandmothers of this rainforest, moss covering the bark and massive ferns brush us on the path to the river. The forest is soft, and welcoming. The river rolls over the river rocks, and the mud paths show tracks of local animals.
The hike to the river, quiet, and peaceful in the morning light. A gentle hike requires, boots, and balance and offers a lovely space to breathe in the mountain air.

We were here about 2 years ago. Since then, the dam has been taken out. It was amazing to see the difference. The river and surrounding area is just not the same. You can no longer get to the campground or the lake. So, if you plan on camping, it will be in the lower campgrounds, not near the dam.
