West Metolius River Trail is a 7.4 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Camp Sherman, Oregon that features a waterfall and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
One of my favorite places to visit in Oregon. I love the entire area.
Decent hike. Some nice views on the way.
Best hiked with a fly rod.
Fun quick hike, scenic along the river with lots of native flowers blooming
We thought we would be able to bike this trail since it has "mountain biking" listed in activities to do on this trail. The trailhead sign says ONLY HIKING ALLOWED. No horses, motor vehicles or bikes. The hike is probably great based on other reviews but we were looking to bike.
Pretty hike. Not challenging but it was beautiful
It is a terrific hike and spectacular scenery along the river! Beautiful!
Beautiful and easy
Awesome! Go on a sunny day with your dog and you will not regret it!
Love this! Many beautiful river spots to stop and enjoy the natural beauty.
This hike is fantastic and not to crowded at all which is a big plus. You are beside the water for basically the whole hike and it is shaded with breaks of some good sunshine. The water was so clear and blue it was amazing and it was easy enough for all ages although some of the trail did get thin so I wouldn't recommend for trackchairs. Also 2 1/2 miles into the trail there is the hatchery that is great for all ages and has food you can give them for 25 cents.
Easy to moderate trail depending on your experience. The Metolius River is very pretty and there are lots of little places to stop and appreciate it. Fish hatchery is also interesting and worth checking out .
Tons of wild flowers & butterflies lined this pristine watershed, making this easy river trail a real treat. We camped right on the river & enjoyed the benefit of hiking in either direction of camp. Great way to get to know the area. We saw a ton of eagles, hawks, & at night bats swooped over the water to get early evening insects. We will definitely return.
