GPS - NFD Road 850, 960m el.

GPS - Gooch Falls, 935m el.

Gooch Falls is east of Salem.
Directions: Two paths
  1. Once on Marion Crk Rd note your odometer reading or reset your trip odometer
  2. Count up 3.5 miles to a place where an unsigned (NFD 850) access road is on the right
    (as reference the access road is 0.4 miles past the road signed as '820')
  3. Find a wide area on Marion Creek Road to park near the access road
    (there is a 'forest green' gate blocking car traffic on NFD 850 - no sign saying you can't walk up the rest of the way)
  4. Walk up the access road to a curve and continue to the right (about 0.1 mile) to a wide gravel area
    (the path to the falls is just past the fallen log in the center of the picture - follow the sound of The Roar)

Restaurant is near junction of HWY 22 and Marion Creek Road.
