Nehalem River: Spruce Run County Park to Nehalem Falls Professional Review and Guide
"The Nehalem River flows westward from the northern Coast Range to the Pacific Ocean, and is among the largest rivers in the Coast Range. In earlier times many logs were floated down the Nehalem from the lush forests where they were cut. The terrain along the river is rugged, with very few inhabitants, and in places the hills rise 1200 feet above the river. One freight train per day still makes the round trip from Portland to Tillamook on the coast, following a 1910 route along the Salmonberry and Nehalem Rivers. Character: forested."
