The Gorge Forest Service Road is an active logging road. There are signs that say “closed to through traffic M-F, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.” This is a wide single-lane dirt road that runs through Crown Land.
Third Creek Falls is a small but nice cascading waterfall right alongside the road and worth the stop to check out. It’s a little over the halfway point of the trail. The northern part of the road is tree-lined, but there are several bridges over a creek that are pretty cool to check out, and if you’re lucky, you might see a bear or other wildlife in the creek.
The southern part of the road is a steep climb, but a 4X4 is not needed. There are steep drop-offs with no guardrails. If you’re afraid of heights, this might not be the best trail for you. But you’ll see spectacular views of Shuswap Lake and Anstey Arm when you climb above the trees.
Gorge Forest Road makes a nice loop when combined with Perry River Road. Just don’t get stuck in the logging activity.
