Overview

This is a moderate one way trail in Oregon within Mount Hood National Forest. This trail can be heavily trafficked, especially on weekends. You will be walk through an old growth forest alongside the beautiful Salmon River encountering mushrooms and birds along the way. The end / top of this trail gives you an amazing, clear view of the surrounding mountains looking down into a steep gorge.

Getting Started

You will drive down E Salmon River Rd. and pass a trailhead that says Salmon River Trail. It's actually the Old Salmon River Trail. Keep going past Green Canyon Campground, and you'll arrive at a bridge which crosses the Salmon River. Park just before the bridge, and you'll see a kiosk at the trailhead. To get to the actual Trail #742, you must walk about 2 miles in on the precursor trail where you'll reach another kiosk which has a map of the area as well as a station to fill out a Wilderness Permit.

Taking Children

(9/10): Moderately difficult, but you can go in as far as you want. The majority of the trail is flat until you get to the end.
