DIRECTIONS - From I-405 in Renton, turn south onto Highway 169 and follow it for 22 miles to the town of Black Diamond. Turn left onto Lawson St which becomes SE Green River Gorge Rd. Follow the road for a few miles to the one lane bridge over the Green River Gorge. Parking is non-existent around here so you'll probably have to walk a little ways to the bridge or pay the $5 fee.

A small stream drops about 50' into the Green River. The only view now is from the bridge over the river which is about 150' high. Just downstream is a taller, seasonal falls that is a nice little bonus.

I believe the trail has now reopened, and it's possible to hike down to the falls. There is a $5 fee for parking. More info can be found here: Green River Gorge
