This beautiful off-the-beaten-path river trail offers stunning views of the Clackamas River, opportunities to view immense red cedars and features superb swimming holes for both you and your furry companion to cool your paws. This scenic river trail begins at Rainbow Campground, located on the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River. This tributary of the Clackamas River is about 25.0 miles long; it flows into Timothy Lake and then flows out of the reservoir for about 16.0 miles and empties into the Clackamas River at Rainbow Campground. The riverside path twists and turns through immense red cedars surrounded by a shimmering green carpet of sword ferns. These amazing trees thrive in areas with a moist environment and are in demand by lumber mills. Trees that have escaped the logger’s ax can grow to be 200 feet high and 8 to 10 feet in diameter.
