Upper Cascade River

Hike the east or west side of the river, either above or below the parking area. For a big loop, hike down the east wide and return up the west side.
For a short hike, follow the trail south from the parking area under the bridge. Within a half-mile you will see stunning old growth cedar, the river and a cliff rising up across the river.


Hike north out of the parking lot for a climb above the river, with peek-a-boo views of Moose Mountain – especially nice in the autumn.
