Gnat Creek Fish Hatchery
Two scenic trails meander through second-growth forest in the Nicolai-Wickiup Watershed, leading from the hatchery to Gnat Creek Campground and Barrier Falls. Birds to see include the American dipper, hermit warbler, Steller's jay, rufous hummingbird, and Swainson's and varied thrush.
From Astoria, take US 30/Lower Columbia River Highway east 18.2 miles, then turn right on Gnat Hatchery Road to the hatchery.
