Salmon River Hike for Climate Forests

The Salmon River is designated as a Wild & Scenic River, and it is also surrounded by the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness, protected in 1984. The enchanting trail follows the river through massive Douglas-firs and redcedars, and a forest with all the classic and essential elements of an old-growth forest. This time of year, these healthy forest soils also sprout mushrooms and we'll plan to learn about these fungi on the trip as well.

Brice Creek Hike for Climate Forests

Brice Creek, easily accessible from Cottage Grove on the I-5 corridor, is a popular summer destination for those looking to swim in cold pools and bask on streamside rocks, but it's also accessible year-round for forest, wildflower, mushroom, and waterfall lovers. The trail follows Brice Creek, proposed as a Wild & Scenic River in current legislation, through a mature and old-growth forest of Douglas-fir, bigleaf maple, western hemlock, and western redcedar, with a side-trail leading to Trestle Creek Falls.
