This relatively new trail explores the canyon of the Wilson River, where salmon and steelhead come to spawn. For many years, it was known to those who don’t fish as “that river along Highway 6 on your way to Tillamook,” but with a trail and a forest center now in place, plus a healthy forest making a comeback after catastrophic fires, the Wilson is a destination all its own.

This trail was great. The hills were not too steep, takes you through multiple waterfalls and streams, all to come to a spectacular conclusion at a gorgeous waterfall. I recommend this hike to any1 looking for an easy to moderatley difficult hike(depending on your experience and strength).
