Clay Creek is a favorite if you enjoy riverside camping with an interpretive trail to old-growth timber. The Siuslaw River is a salmon watch site that runs fast and cold during the winter months, providing exceptional habitat for coho and Chinook salmon that can be observed spawning during the fall and winter. The recreation site also boasts large group shelters available by reservation for group outings, weddings, or other events.

Drove up to hike at the end of September to find out the trail was closed for maintenance

The trail has major tree damage and is not usable at this time. Fallen trees are blocking access just across the footbridge. I look forward to this hike once it has been cleared.
