Alder Flat Trail is a 1.4 mile out and back trail located near Estacada, OR that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Love it here
Easy hike. Its down hill to the river and camp spots and the elevation change is only around 300 feet so pretty easy on the way back to your car as well. Its 1.8 miles round trip. Great for first time hikers or if you want to get the kids going. No bathrooms or showers and the only water is out of the river. Lots of great fishing and swimming holes and I haven't been able to check them all but I was told there is 10 camp spots total. I will be going back next week and will add more info and upload some tracks.
