60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Portland

The scenery if worthy of five stars but, on the hike we did from the lower trailhead in to the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness boundary (about 8 miles roundtrip), there was too much closeness to the road and to car campers for that extra star. Nevertheless, a beautiful hike with a boulder-strewn river, some genuine old growth and an excellent packed-earth trail. Next time, we will start from the "middle" section by the road bridge and continue a few miles into the designated wilderness. Bonus: Back in Zig Zag, the road leading to spectacular Ramona Falls' trailhead is only a few yards away.
