Here's a Lassie video from 1967 shot in the Gorge about the flume. At about 1:20 it looks like they pull over into the Swell City parking area:

Bring Da Flume back. I see the remnants west side of the tunnels up on the hill. Would be the sickest ride around.

Sweet! I too have been looking at that for 20+ years and thought it something else. Thanks for the history.

I would have loved to ride a log boat down that!!
