The Clackamas River is a mecca for outdoors lovers in the greater Portland area. Camping, whitewater rafting, fishing, and, of course, hiking are all popular activities along the length of the Clackamas. One way to get a prime sampling of the river’s beauty is by hiking the Clackamas River Trail to Pup Creek Falls. The running waters of the Clackamas River are a fine sight anytime of year. The trail rises and falls as it parallels the waterway, visiting a couple of nice water-access areas and beaches that beg to be explored. These are prime spots for snack breaks and rock skipping. The path also leads to some stunning cliff-edge viewpoints, but be sure to mind younger hikers in these areas. The first 2 miles of the hike passes through the remains of a 2003 forest fire.
