Salmon River Trail – Welches, Ore.
The Salmon River Trail is near Welches, Oregon. From Portland, it means an hour or so drive along highway 26. I went with my best friend, Alex, on 26 November 2012. It was chilly, but beautifully green and scenic at the top.
From the top, you could hear the river below. It was quite windy.
Overall, the hike was a bit dull until the end. On the plus side: (a.) It was a snow-free winter hike, and (b.) The view from the top was quite a delight.
