Indian River Trail

By July 14, 2016 No Comments

• USE : Beginning Multiuse, Remainder Hike Only
DESCRIPTION : Relaxing walk through northwest coast rainforest with views of the Sisters Mountain, wildlife and more.
DISTANCE : 4.38 miles one way – 2-3 hours one-way
TIME : 2-3 Hours (one way)
TRAILHEAD : Begins at parking lot 0.5 miles down Indian River Road on right. Ends near the base of Indian River falls.
ELEVATION GAIN : Approximately 1000 feet
RECOMMENDED SEASON : Year Round
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY : Easy. Climbs gradually. Easy to find, clear, in fair condition. Some muddy spots.  The last few hundred feet to the base of the falls is not a trail; more like boulder-hopping through the creek.  Bears are uncommon on the trail and probably avoid it during the day, but this is a very fishy river, so be bear aware.

Bikes not currently allowed on trail past the pump house gate.

TRAIL MANAGEMENT AGENCY : US Forest Service
