Description

Although this trail is near the road, the closeness and constant sound of the river, as well as the old growth features of the forest, make this one of the most outstanding hikes on the Zigzag District. Other than a short hill on each end of the trail, this is a relatively flat trail. It has several bridges that cross small creeks. It does pop up on the road a couple of times since it is located on a narrow slice of land between Salmon River itself and Salmon River Road.
