Map of Kaasda Héen (Indian River) Trail
  • USE : Hike
  • DESCRIPTION : Relaxing walk along Kaasda Héen (Indian River) through northwest coast rainforest with views of the Sisters Mountain, wildlife and more. The trail follows a salmon stream, so expect high levels of bear activity during spawning season.
  • DISTANCE : 4.38 miles (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.
