Hiking the Salmon River Trail

Rhododendron, OR, United States

During our stay in Welches, we decided to hike along the Salmon River Trail. Obviously by its name, it’s a trail that runs along the Salmon River. I believe the whole trail is 7ish miles, but we only did a 2.25 mile segment (4.5 miles total there and back) because we only had a couple of hours.It is a very easy hike along the trail with a few uphill and downhill areas and across a couple very small streams and the scenery is beautiful. There are great views of the river, lots of tall old trees, and a few narrow bridges over creeks.The trail is very well maintained, and there are a couple different camping areas along the way (no facilities, just cleared out areas with a fire pit or two.We really enjoyed our hike, and would have kept going if we had had more time!
