This is a nice trail for all levels. It is not nearly as busy as some of the other trails in the area. The path is quite narrow at times. (Totally doable, you can just tell it isn't a high traffic trail) Some negatives for us... The road is RIGHT there for more of the trail than we would have preferred. The biggest downside was the garbage. There was a l lot of it. Not garbage I was willing to pick up either... Like used toilet paper all over the place. The plus sides were there too though. You can easily spawn off the trail and check out the Clackamas River. There was a lovely bridge and LOTS of interesting trees and nature to look at along the way.

This app takes you to the campsite .9 mile past the trailhead. This time of year, the river was high and fast, super mossy, green forest!! There was no one else out there today and it was perfect for my dog today!!! Easy trail, a bit slippery today, be safe!!

I really enjoyed this trail, so mellow, and great access to the river and potential swimming spots. The map location took me to Riverside Campground which the trail connects to, but it wasn't super easy to spot the trail head within the campground. The actual trailhead is about 2 miles before the campground, on the right.

There is something about the rainy day Fall hike that this trail lends itself perfectly to.
