Rangers guide visitors through the landscape being created by the river following the removal of Elwha Dam in March 2012.
Walks provide an up-close look at shifting sediments, old and new vegetation, giant stumps logged a century ago and the river re-establishing itself.
The walks begin at the former boat launch located at the end of Lake Aldwell Road.
To get there, take U.S. Highway 101 and drive about 8 miles west of Port Angeles.
Turn north — sharp right — off Highway 101 onto Lake Aldwell Road immediately after the Elwha River Bridge.
Visitors should wear sturdy walking shoes or boots and be prepared for windy conditions with no shade.
The guided portion of the walk will last about an hour.
