“take on a kid-friendly hike at Salmon River!”

With an easily accessible trailhead and a beautiful riverside trail through lush old-growth forests, it's no wonder that the Salmon River Trail is a popular option for Portlanders. The Salmon River is one of the most beautiful waterways in the area, and that’s saying something. It meanders gracefully through untouched forests, plunges off hidden waterfalls, and swirls into deep inviting pools. Sitting comfortably in the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, the Salmon River Trail parallels the Salmon River for roughly 8 miles. Within that 8-mile stretch lives some of the most wondrous and scenic old-growth forest in the Portland area. On top of that, the trailhead is easy to access and the path itself gains elevation in very small, palatable chunks until you leave the river and launch into the wilderness.
