The Molalla River Trail System is an extensive network of more than 20 miles of trails for hikers, bicyclists and equestrians. The system combines both single track trails and old forest roads. The trails wind through the forested foothills and slopes of the Molalla River Valley, occasionally offering scenic glimpses of the forests and mountains of the Cascade Range. The system offers a variety of difficulty levels for a wide range of mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding enthusiasts.
A network of trails suitable for dry-weather hiking crisscrosses the canyon at Marshall Park. Late summer is a good time to visit, when trails are packed hard and the shady canyon offers a welcome reprieve from the heat. Within the park is a waterfall framed by rock boulders. One of the notable features of the trail system is a small stone bridge which spans Tryon Creek.
This four mile trail can be windy at times, but it is a beautiful, convenient and family-friendly trail that runs right along the Columbia River from the Broughton Beach boat ramp out to I-205.
This natural area offers walkers the opportunity to enjoy the quiet and beauty of a Douglas ﬁr and big leaf maple dominated forest in their own backyard.
You'll see native trees, plants, flowers and dozens of species along this beautiful 2 mile hike. Natural processes, human impacts, and different land owner objectives and forestry techniques can also be seen along this scenic trail. You'll also pass the historic Clatskanie 60-foot Fire Tower. Visitors should dress for the weather (we encourage layers) and have footwear suitable for safe walking outdoors on trails.
The site is comprised of numerous parcels of land that lie along Beaver Creek. Facilities are limited to natural trails. A majority of the canyon is heavily wooded and provides open space and wildlife habitat.
